E2: Who Was Augustine of Hippo?

The Great Courses Presents: Books That Matter - The City of God

Examine the paradoxical life of Augustine: Who was he? Why is he such an important historical figure? You'll be surprised that much of what we may associate with him, such as his metaphysical dualism and his antidemocratic adherence to Church law, is mistaken. Here, you'll uncover the real Augustine - and find a man not so unlike ourselves.
