For this book, Peter Brown has collected together a number of essays and articles written over the last few years. Under three headings - religion and society; Rome; Africa - they examine the diverse elements that determined the climate of thought and action in the rapidly changing world of the late fourth century. St. Augustine is, of course, the central figure; and in an important introduction Peter Brown explains how the preoccupations of these essays led him to write his celebrated biography, Augustine of Hippo, which won the Arts Council Prize for 1968. He gives, too, a challenging account of his view of the historian’s task.
This new book will undoubtedly confirm and extend Peter Brown’s substantial reputation as an outstanding scholar and accomplished writer.
