Overview

Considering Augustine's political thought and ethics in relation to his theology, this book expands on earlier works by Augustine. It focuses on the role of grace and the Bible, which Augustine saw as contributing to the soul's growth in virtue, leading him to revise the ancient concepts of heroism and the statesman. The volume will be essential reading for scholars of Augustine, Christian theology, late Roman antiquity, the history of Western political thought, and political ethics.
