Rhetoric “Lock-In”

Our new 9th-Grade Students enjoyed a "lock-in" in the school last Friday night.

Saint Augustine: Rhetoric Student (and Teacher) By Aaron Denlinger

Saint Augustine: Rhetoric Student (and Teacher) By Aaron Denlinger Arma Dei Academy students entering the Rhetoric stage of their education are walking, perhaps unbeknownst to them, in the footsteps of Augustine of Hippo (354-420 AD), a.k.a. Saint Augustine, arguably Christianity’s best known theologian of all time. Having completed his early education in Madauros (a small town in present-day Algeria), Augustine moved to Carthage as a teenager to study formal Rhetoric. He proved rather apt at the discipline, and shortly after completing his studies, became a Rhetoric teacher, first in Carthage, and then in Milan. Upon moving to Italy, Augustine attended sermons…
