Abstract

Based on the Latin axiom, lex orandi, lex credendi, this examination asserts that spiritual and doctrinal theology walk hand in hand. Augustine's spiritual exegesis of the book of Psalms is read in light of the doctrinal developments of his time, specifically ecclesiology, soteriology, and anthropology. Using the tool of spiritual exegesis, Augustine examined the part of Christian tradition embedded in the Psalms in a manner that influenced his understanding of doctrinal teachings that he would (or already had) developed.
