This book is the first systematic attempt to consider the social and cultural context that shaped the life and thought of Augustine. Carol Harrison shows how his beliefs in both Christian truth and human fallenness effected a decisive break with classical ideals of perfection and shaped the distinctive theology of Western Christiandom.*--Sets Augustine's theology firmly in the contexts which shaped it.*--Will be of interest to a very wide range of readers, from theologians to classicists, and from ancient historians to philosophers.
