Augustine (Saint -- Bishop of Hippo), Star Wars films, Confessiones (Augustinus)

Abstract

The parallels between Augustine’s Confessions and the movie Star Wars might at first seem to be few and far between, but this paper argues for that the opposite in fact is true when viewed through the lens of rhetoric. This paper suggests that both the Confessions and Star Wars reframe traditional storylines for their own times. For Augustine it is the Bible and for Star Wars it is a traditional WWII Storyline.
