Editorial Reviews

"As such, this present inter-and interdisciplinary companion toAugustine gathers and presents new flavours within Augustineresearch, which certainly leaves us yearning for more." (Ephemerides Theologicae Lovanienses, 1 December 2012)

“Besides an introduction by Mark Vessey, this trulyimpressive volume has seven parts; each of the parts has manyarticles by some of the finest Augustinian scholars and historiansof late antiquity . . . All told, the volume is a fine contributionto Augustinian studies by some of the best scholars of the presentday.”  (Catholic Historical Review, 1 January2013)

“For those of us who teach Augustine on a regular basis,but who are not members of the sprawling familia of scholars whohave structured their research agendas around the work of thisfascinating and deeply influential late antique bishop, this volumeis a treasure trove of judicious assessments and learnedinsights.  It would not be difficult to structure averyworthwhile seminar on the age of Augustine using its contents,particularly Parts I-V. Mark Vessey has performed an exceptionalservice by marshalling this legion of specialists to produce whatwill surely be one of the most important resources for the study ofAugustine for many decades to come.”  (Bryn MawrClassical Review, 16 February 2013)








“Summing Up: Recommended.  Lower-level undergraduatesthrough rearchers/faculty.”  (Choice, 1 November2012)
