Saint Augustine of Hippo, a major figure in Christian thought, lived in the 4th century in the Roman Empire. Converted to Christianity after a tumultuous youth, he became bishop of Hippo in North Africa. His major work, “The Confessions”, relates his spiritual quest and his conversion. An influential philosopher, he developed the doctrine of divine grace and the theory of the "City of God" in a declining world. His fight against heresies and his commitment to orthodoxy profoundly marked the history of the Church. His writings, imbued with depth and insight, continue to exert a considerable influence on Christian theology.
