Product description

The 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.

"A model biography. Mr. Brown is an impeccable scholar but also a vivid biographer and a delightful writer; he brings Augustine and his whole age persuasively to life."--Hugh Trevor-Roper, "Sunday Times"
