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 fieldContentsList of Figures xiNotes on Contributors xiiPreface xviiiSource Acknowledgments xixAbbreviations xxiThe Works of Augustine xxivChronology of Augustine's Life xl1 Introduction 1Mark VesseyPART I Contexts 92 Political History 11Christopher Kelly3 Cultural Geography 24William E.
