Spiritalis Homo: Cuestiones de Espiritualidad Cristiana en Agustín de Hipona
La oración de Jesús en Getsemaní
The article deals with the prayer of Jesus in Gethsemane, as presented by St. Augustine in the Enarrationes in Psalmos and in the Sermones de sanctis. An exegetical introduction of the New Testament texts of the prayer of Jesus in Gethsemane is offered, as well as the pre-Augustinian patristic tradition, highlighting the various points that Augustine’s previous Fathers of the Church underlined in the Prayer of Jesus in Gethsemane. It later discusses Augustine’s Texts where He addresses this topic, highlighting particularly the ecclesiological interpretation of the Bishop of Hippo.
