Omtale: A Companion to Augustine
A Companion to Augustine presents a fresh collection of scholarship by leading academics with a new approach to contextualizing Augustine and his works within the multi-disciplinary field of Late Antiquity, showing Augustine as both a product of the cultural forces of his times and a cultural force in his own right. * Discusses the life and works of Augustine within their full historical context, rather than privileging the theological context * 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
