Bio and Research

Peter Bayer did his BA in Classics and Music (Organ performance) with minors in Medieval Byzantine Studies and Philosophy at The Catholic University of America, Washington, D.C. His chief research interest is the systematic use of classical (particularly Platonic) philosophy in service to early Christian theology, particularly in the works of St. Augustine of Hippo. He is also interested in the relation between music and philosophy in ancient Greece, and generally in the use of and response to poets (especially Pindar) in the Platonic tradition.
