    DescriptionThe need for a complete biography of Saint Augustine in English has long been recognized. Peter Brown, Fellow of All Souls College, Oxford, has brilliantly filled the gap with a book which bears all the marks of a classic: a work of equal value to the general reader and to the scholar.
