/Classics/St's Writings
  • Does God exist? Can we know anything about God's nature? What is truth? Do human beings have freedom of choice? Can they have such a freedom in a world created by God? These questions, and others, were ones which Anselm of Canterbury (c.1033 - 1109) took very seriously.  This great theologian looked to answer these important questions in his major works.
