    Augustine’s Use of the Pauline Portrayal of Peter in Galatians 2.Geoffrey D. Dunn - 2015 - Augustinian Studies 46 (1):23-42.
    The incident at Antioch described in Galatians 2:11–14 features in a number of Augustine’s works: Expositio epistulae ad Galatas, his correspondence with Jerome, De mendacio, Sermo 162C, and in De baptismo contra Donatistas. While a few scholars have seen Augustine’s anti-Donatism as a driving force behind all his comments about this encounter between Peter and Paul, this article argues that, while the idea of Peter’s humility is to be found in his commentary, the sermon, one of the letters, and the (...)

    Cicero and the Sermon: Further Reflections on the Art of Preaching.Geoffrey D. Dunn - 2020 - The Australasian Catholic Record 97 (1):45.
    As my time writing scripture reflections for this journal has drawn to an end, it is a good opportunity to reflect more theoretically about the nature of homiletic preaching today. My first peer-reviewed publication was on this topic. Since then I have returned on occasion to investigate preaching in the early Christian centuries both on its own terms qua preaching and as source material for theological expression. It is a matter worthy of fresh reflection, because in the twenty years since (...)

    Ecclesiology in Early North African Christianity.Geoffrey D. Dunn - 2017 - Augustinianum 57 (2):371-401.
    The Matthean parable of the wheat and the weeds appears across the spectrum of writings of early Christians in north Africa. Given that the parable seems to advocate a non-judgemental acceptance of sinners within the community in the present age, while north African Christianity is known for its emphasis on membership purity and the exclusion of sinners, how was this parable handled in that context? This article argues that an author like Tertullian avoided the ecclesiological dimensions of the parable, and (...)

  8. Funciones de María, según las homilías navideñas de Agustín de Hipona.Geoffrey D. Dunn - 2011 - Augustinus 56 (220):53-67.
    El artículo estudia los comentarios de Agustín sobre María en sus dieciocho homilías de Navidad, señalando la frecuencia y los contextos en que estas ideas aparecen, y el propósito que tienen. Como prueba del naciente culto a María en la cristiandad del Norte de África, el autor señala el interés de Agustín por María en sí misma, o por lo que ella significaba para la cristología.

    Life in the Cemetery: Boniface I and the Catacomb of Maximus.Geoffrey D. Dunn - 2015 - Augustinianum 55 (1):137-157.
    Liber pontificalis records that, during the disputed Roman episcopal election, which started at the end of 418 and lasted several months, between Eulalius and Boniface, the latter took up residence in the cemetery of Felicity when the two candidates were expelled from the city. It also records Boniface, after his ultimate victory as legitimate bishop, refurbishing this cemetery and eventually being buried there. Although Liber pontificalis is wrong on a number of points withregard to the disputed election, as revealed through (...)

    La pobreza como asunto social en las homilías de Agustín.Geoffrey D. Dunn - 2012 - Augustinus 57 (224):42-48.
    Parece que san Agustín, en sus "sermones ad populum" proporciona muy poca información concreta sobre las realidades sociales de riqueza y pobreza. El artículo examina esta información para comentar la importancia que tenía para Agustín el aspecto social de la pobreza.

    Reflections on the Readings of Sundays and Feasts: December 2017-February 2018.Geoffrey D. Dunn - 2017 - The Australasian Catholic Record 94 (4):482.
    Dunn, Geoffrey D As with last year's reflections, it is my intention to give a distinctly patristic flavour to what I write, drawing upon the rich tradition of the church in the youthful flush of its earliest centuries, a time also of great challenge, to see the enduring relevance and beauty of the insights of the earliest Christian preachers, commentators and authors.

    Dunn, Geoffrey D In the past two weeks we have heard of covenants God made with people: the covenant with Noah symbolised by the rainbow and the covenant with Abraham symbolised by the stars in the night sky. God made fantastic promises and it would seem that God asked for little in return. Perhaps that is unfair. Noah had to suffer seeing the rest of humanity destroyed and Abraham endured the torment of preparing his son for sacrifice. They both offered (...)

    Reflections on the Readings of Sundays and Feasts June-August 2018.Geoffrey D. Dunn - 2018 - The Australasian Catholic Record 95 (2):229.
    Dunn, Geoffrey D Older Catholics would have grown up hearing about the sacrifice of the Mass, while in the last fifty years we have increasingly spoken of the celebration of the eucharist. Of course, the eucharist is sacrifice, but it is other things besides, like meal and celebration, and the word 'sacrifice' is easy to misinterpret. For many of us the word 'sacrifice' conjures up thoughts of the killing and slaughter of animals or even people. It is true that the (...)

    Reflections on the Readings of Sundays and Feasts September - November 2018.Geoffrey D. Dunn - 2018 - The Australasian Catholic Record 95 (3):352.
    Dunn, Geoffrey D We see in Mark's Gospel an interest in Jesus reaching out beyond the Jewish people to bring the good news to other peoples as well. One of the issues associated with that is the extent to which these other people need to adopt Jewish ways in order to become followers of Jesus. That is why, even though we are in a section of Mark's Gospel that deals with Jesus and the disciples, we have today's passage about Jesus (...)

    Reflections on the Readings of Sundays and Feasts: March-May 2019.Geoffrey D. Dunn - 2019 - The Australasian Catholic Record 96 (1):91.
    We continue where we left off from last Sunday with Jesus establishing the ethical foundations of the new Israel. Hypocrisy is really one of the most distasteful of human characteristics and in today's gospel passage Jesus confronts it head on. Hypocrisy is the real 'fake news', for it is nothing other than a sham and a pretence that we are something that we really are not, a contrivance that we are better than others when we are not, a sanctimonious false (...)

    It is not specified in Mark's Gospel where the ascension of Jesus takes place, although the last location specified is Jerusalem. Nor are we given a time frame for how long after the resurrection it occurred. In Matthew we also have no time frame, but the ascension is located in the north, in Galilee. In the second half of Luke we are told that the ascension took place forty days after the resurrection, and in the first half we are told (...)

    In chapter 14 of Luke's Gospel we have several stories about table fellowship put together and several sayings of Jesus that are added as maxims to conclude the stories, even though originally they were probably used in a different context. We find the first maxim about those who exalt themselves being humbled and those who humble themselves being exalted attached to different material in Matthew 23. We have just heard the first of those two table fellowship stories, which are found (...)

    Dunn, Geoffrey D As a seminary student I was taught that a homily ought to end with a eucharistic link. Mature reflection leads me to conclude that the entire homily is itself the eucharistic link. It joins together the interplay of the life of the assembly and the Scriptures, on the one hand, and the great prayer of thanksgiving on the other. My reflections are missing the element of the life of the assembly, which can be supplied only by individual (...)

    Dunn, Geoffrey D Lent is a time of preparation for Easter. It developed during the fourth century as a time when sinners, who could no longer participate as full members of the church due to the serious and public nature of their offences, prepared for reconciliation with the church through penance, and adult catechumens, who were seeking to join the church as new members, prepared for initiation into the church. The season is a time of renewal of relationships for the (...)

    Dunn, Geoffrey D One of my philosophy professors told me there were two sets of alternatives at the heart of philosophy, which is another way of saying that there are two fundamental choices between two different ways at the heart of understanding life. The years have proven, at least as far as I am concerned, just how insightful this observation was. The two sets of alternatives are one and many, and being and flux. The solemn feast of Pentecost, the last (...)

    The Call to Perfection, Financial Asceticism, and Jerome.Geoffrey D. Dunn - 2012 - Augustinianum 52 (1):197-218.
    The encounter between Jesus and the rich young man in Mt. 19,16-30 provides the setting for the teachingon the attaining of perfection, which is presented as a three-step process: the selling of one’s possessions, the distribution of the proceeds to the poor, andthe following of Christ . It was a passage to which Jerome appealed frequently in hiswritings and which Finn, in his recent monograph, believes demonstrates Jerome’s extreme views. In this paper I shall examine Jerome’s references to this biblical (...)

    The Development of Rome as Metropolitan of Suburbicarian Italy. Innocent I’s Letter to the Bruttians.Geoffrey D. Dunn - 2011 - Augustinianum 51 (1):161-190.
    Innocent I addressed Epistula 38 to two Bruttian bishops, Maximus and Severus, in response to a complaint from Maximilianus, an agens in rebus,that these southern Italian bishops had failed to take action against presbyters who fathered children contrary to the requirements of celibacy after ordination and claimed to be ignorant of any policy on this matter. Innocent reminded the two bishops that they needed to attend to their duties. This letter is among the earliest evidence for how the Roman bishop (...)
