The Dark Knight and the Saint: Reflections on Batman and St. Augustine

Baylor Science Building, D110

“The Dark Night and the Saint” explores the moral world of Gotham City and the late Roman Empire through the lens of the Batman and the great Saint, Augustine, respectively. In the wake of the Colorado movie theater massacre, a number of commentators have condemned the film or raised questions about the role the film allegedly played in bestirring the shooter to violence. Professor Elshtain will argue that this is a terrible misunderstanding of the moral world of the Batman and, as well, that St. Augustine pierces through the darkness and assists us in orienting ourselves to the light—as the Batman himself does in a situation of profound moral ambiguity.
