  • Descrição: Saint Augustine (354-430 CE), a native North African, lived during the time Rome ruled the Mediterranean region. Augustine's mother was a devout Christian. His non-Christian father was a local official whose political influence enabled Augustine to acquire an esteemed education from reputable institutions. Traveling internationally, Augustine led a fascinating life, and his cultural experiences helped develop his worldly, judicious concepts. With a synthesis of academic scholarship and theological conviction, Saint Augustine became a renowned Christian intellectual. In his book The Confessions of Saint Augustine, he not only shares his social, educational, and theological development, but also he clearly identifies himself as an African. Nevertheless, people today think of Saint Augustine as a European theologian, including many African Americans.
