  • Opens up a new phase of study on Augustine, sensitive to themany and varied perspectives of scholarship on late Romanculture
  • State-of-the-art essays by leading academics in this field

Editorial Reviews

"This companion was first published in 2012 and has now been republished in paperback. Its scope and breadth is as impressive as the list of contributors … An essential tool for any philosopher’s library." Exegetical Tools (October 2015)

"This is a successful Companionthat fills in certain lacunae in the study of Augustine and late antiquity. As such, it is more suited to scholars with specific interests than beginners looking for entry points into Augustine’s complex and sophisticated thought." Religious Studies Review (December 2013)

"This inter- and intra-disciplinary companion to Augustine gathers and presents new flavours within Augustine research, which certainly leaves us yearning for more." Ephemerides Theologicae Lovanienses
