From Ancient Philosophy to Christian Wisdom

In this video, Brian Daley and Rémi Brague discuss the attitude of early Christians and beyond to the patrimony of classical antiquity, and what we are given is series of examples in which Christian authors engage and draw upon pagan authors continuously and respectfully, integrating  and supplementing their work into what would become more and more clearly a distinctively Christian civilization. A civilization that has introduced subjectivity, metaphysical freedom, and forgiveness to the catalogue of Western civilization; at once indebted to classical civilization but also its perfection.
