An Amateur Classicist's Review of Political Philosophy, Theology, and Literature, with Occasional Reflections on the Age That Is Passing
Tuesday, May 14, 2002
Just finished up Peter Brown's excellent biography of St. Augustine of Hippo, two weeks late for my seminar final project. Regardless, it was a welcome read, and in the passing of the years since its 1967 publish date Professor Brown seems to have toned down his portrait of Augustine the Incorrigible Authoritarian. Alas, I do not have the most recent edition.
