Abstract

Analizar la filosofía política de Agustín es un debate actual, particularmente su reflexión sobre la iglesia y el estado. Esta obra recopila una serie de contribuciones que examinan las perspectivas teóricas de Agustín a este respecto. Agustín comprendió sus responsabilidades como líder de la teología y de la iglesia: la veracidad de la fe y la unidad de la iglesia no podían comprometerse. Nunca dudó en apelar a las actividades civiles con el fin de lograr su objetivo. De hecho, se aventuró a expandir la autoridad civil, al emperador, contra una autoridad eclesiástica como la del papa Zósimo. Esta apelación al brazo secular del poder estuvo influenciada, de un lado, por la preocupación de Agustín sobre la preservación del orden y la paz y, de otro, por su creencia del derecho a la verdad; aunque esta aspiración de Agustín no fue del todo absoluta. Rechazó la idea de que los humanos se debían convertir a la fuerza, contra su voluntad. También condenó cualquier cosa que comprometiera la integridad física de los seres humanos. En resumen, Agustín reconoció el valor del sistema político, lo cual sirvió para salvaguardar los buenos fines de la vida terrenal: la paz y la justicia. No obstante, Agustín creía que la paz y la justicia terrenal eran reflejos de la paz y la justicia celestial, pues es esto último la base del orden y la estabilidad en la tierra.

Abstract

Debate is ongoing about Augustine’s political philosophy, and more particularly about his views on the relations between Church and State. This volume brings together a number of contributions that examine Augustine’s theoretical views on the subject. Augustine assumed his responsibilities as a theologian and Church leader: the truth of the faith and the unity of the Church could not be compromised. He did not hesitate to appeal to the civil authorities in the pursuit of this goal. In fact, he even ventured to deploy the civil authority, the emperor, against an ecclesiastical authority such as Pope Zosimus. This appeal to the secular arm of power was inspired on the one hand by Augustine’s concern for the preservation of order and peace, and on the other by his faith in the rights of truth. Yet this aspiration of Augustine’s was not absolute either. He rejected the idea that humans should be converted forcibly, against their will. He also condemned anything that compromised the physical integrity of human beings. In short, Augustine also recognised the value of the political system. This served to safeguard the good ends of earthly life, i.e. peace and justice. But Augustine believed this earthly peace and justice were reflections of the heavenly peace and justice, which are the foundation of earthly order and stability.
