The Eccentric Augustine

Thursday, April 25, 2019

Catherine Conybeare, Professor of Greek, Latin and Classical Studies, Bryn Mawr College
The writings of Augustine of Hippo (354–430 CE) are fundamental to the Western European intellectual tradition. It is rarely taken into account, however, that he spent almost his entire life in North Africa. This talk will consider what the late Roman Empire looked like from the “eccentric” vantage points of Numidia and Africa Proconsularis—Algeria and Tunisia, in contemporary terms—and what effect that eccentricity may have had on Augustine’s thought.
