The starting point for Augustine�s philosophy is his stance on the relation between faith and reason. We�ve seen that there are two ways of approaching the relation between faith and reason: first, Tertullian�s faith-only position, and, second, the view that reason by itself can go a long way in establishing religious truths independently of faith. Augustine struck a middle ground between the two, advocating a position that he called �faith seeking understanding.� His inspiration for this was a passage from the Old Testament book of Isaiah �Unless you believe, you will not understand.� On this view, reason by itself is not good enough to give us proper religious knowledge; instead, we have to begin with faith to set us in the right direction and, once we believe in God through faith, we can seek to understand the foundations of our belief through reason. ����������� A running theme throughout Augustine�s writings is that knowledge is indeed attainable, and we should reject the efforts of philosophical skeptics ref.: Early English poetry, ballads, and popular literature of the Middle Ages (v.24) This was the “Golden Age” for Spanish, North African, and Egyptian Jews.

To incur the displeasure of one's lady was to be cast into the void, beyond all light, warmth, and possibility of life. And just as the feudal lord stood above and beyond his vassal, so the lady occupied a more celestial sphere than that of her lover. Customarily she seemed remote and haughty, imperious and difficult to please. She expected to be served and wooed, minutely and at great length Julian of Norwich: Revelations of Divine Love and The Motherhood of God (Library of Medieval Women)
