Historical Who is Who » AUGUSTINE
Prior to his conversion to Christianity in his early thirties, very much influenced by the prevailing intellectual trends and sexual mores of the late Roman Empire. His reactions to all these are vividly portrayed in his autobiographical Confessions and in his extensive writings he expounds the nature of evil, of happiness, of love and marriage, peace and justice. The demands of citizenship, human and divine, are explored in his City of God. He continues to be a major reference point in the development of the Christian tradition, not least in his inspiration for the foundation of schools and colleges named after him.
