Summary

Summary

Augustine (AD 354-430) is perhaps the most influential figure in the transition from pagan antiquity to the Middle Ages. This book sets him in his social and cultural context. It shows how his belief in Christian truth and his conviction of human fallenness cut at the roots of classical aspirations after perfection.
