About this Book

  • Presents Augustine's life, works and leading ideas in the cultural context of the late Roman world, providing a vibrant and engaging sense of Augustine in action in his own time and place
  • Opens up a new phase of study on Augustine, sensitive to the many and varied perspectives of scholarship on late Roman culture
  • State-of-the-art essays by leading academics in this field
