Up to the Augustine Club Homepage
The Augustine Club is a student organization dedicated to the study of the Christian intellectual tradition and its approach to the modern world-- the issues and ideas of the day. The members believe that the diverse approaches of Christian thinkers throughout history offer an invaluable contribution to intellectual discourse on campus. The Club is intended for any and all students, regardless of religious affiliation, interested in exploring the truth behind the moral and social issues of our Modern World without adopting the common secular practice of arbitrarily excluding the voice of Christianity from public debate.
The main activities of the Club are lectures and discussion meetings. We hold the discussions weekly, typically on Tuesday night. The lectures are typically scheduled on an ad-hoc basis once or twice per semester.
Texts from some of our past lectures are available.

Membership in the club is open to anyone interested in exploring the Christian intellectual tradition. Members need not be Christians of any particular denomination, or even Christians, but simply be open to learning about Christianity. Regrettably, we have no facilities for online activities, so physical presence is required for membership.
Please come to a lecture or meeting.
Lectures are advertised to the public throughout the Morningside Heights campus and Manhattan, so attendees include a broad cross-section of people. Discussions meetings are typically attended by a smaller group of people more specifically interested in the Club.
