Product description


Fifty years ago we learned how much more there was to say when Peter Brown published his magnificent life, Augustine of Hippo ... [Lane Fox] has now done Brown one better ... Brown managed to tell the whole story, from birth to death, with great economy and flair. Fox aims for full immersion, and he conjures the intellectual and social life of the late Roman empire with an almost Proustian relish for detail. (Mark Lilla New York Times Book Review)

Undoubtedly a watershed in Augustinian studies ... the magisterial and compellingly readable narrative ... makes full and creative use of all the best recent scholarship. (Rowan Williams New Statesman)

Book Description

'Give me chastity, but not yet', Augustine famously prayed. His intimate spiritual masterpiece, The Confessions, has inspired millions for centuries. Robin Lane Fox's superb biography draws on new sources to give a revelatory portrait of one of the most remarkable and compelling personalities of the ancient world.
