About Saint Augustine of Hippo

Saint Augustine was born on November 13th, A.D. 354, in Tagaste (modern Souk Ahras, Algeria), and died almost seventy-six years later in Hippo Regius (modern Annaba) on the Mediterranean coast sixty miles away. In the years between, he devoted himself to the mastery of the texts of scripture, becoming a formidable theologian. Garry Wills is one of the most respected writers on religion today. He is the author of "Saint Augustine s Childhood," "Saint Augustine s Memory," and "Saint Augustine s Sin," the first three volumes in this series, as well as the Penguin Lives biography" Saint Augustine." His other books include " Negro President: Jefferson and the Slave Power," " Why I Am a Catholic," " Papal Sin," and "Lincoln at Gettysburg," which won the Pulitzer Prize."
