February 19, 2014 marked the beginning of the 40th year of the Augustinian Chair at the Augustinian Patristic Institute in Rome. Its purpose is to present the thought and spirituality of Saint Augustine and the reception of his works through the centuries.

This year's theme is "*Deum et animam scire cupio*" ("I want to know God and the Soul"). It will be an introduction to the reading of St. Augustine's dialogue *De quantitate animae* (The Greatness of the Soul). Introductory lessons will be given by Fr. Nello Cipriani (Augustinianum) and professor Giuseppe Balido (Faculty of Theology of Southern Italy). Finally, a reading of the book will be guided by Professor Paola Pascucci.
