Abstract:
My dissertation is a study in the field of comparative philosophy of religion in which I try to bring St Augustine and Rāmānuja, theologians of two great traditions, Christianity and devotional Hinduism, into a dialogue by focusing on two central themes, those of Time and Embodiment, that play a crucial role in their through. Each of these two traditions encompasses within its own fold a wide range of diverse though interconnected religious forms of life and the ways in which these two themes have been developed by St Augustine and Rāmānuja have continued to exert a tremendous influence on the histories of European thought and of Hindu movements centred around the notion of bhakti (usually translated as ‘devotional love of God’) respectively.
