Main Conclusions

This research shows the importance of wisdom Christology and wisdom theology for Augustine’s views on initial faith formation, and points out the focus and relevance of this theological approach, that has become overshadowed during the later theological and spiritual developments of Christianity. The findings and insights of this study, based on a comprehensive and systematic research into motherhood symbolism in Augustine’s texts, are not only important for Augustinian Studies, but also make an important contribution to the study of spirituality and mystagogy.
