Rosmini]. "Augustine of Hippo was a theologian whose work shaped Western Christianity...Augustine's ideas had a seminal influence on Western Christian theology and shaped the course of European life for almost 1,000 years. Augustine's thinking is central to both Roman Catholic and Protestant theology. Medieval thinkers appealed to him as authority, and his influence can be seen in the thought of Anselm of Canterbury, Thomas Aquinas and Peter Lombard, among others. The leaders of the Protestant Reformation relied heavily on his teachings. Augustine's teaching that individuals are saved by grace alone was central to Martin Luther's theology, while his theory of predestination strongly influenced John Calvin. The eighteenth-century reformer John Wesley also studied Augustine... [See: "Lives & Legacies: An Encyclopedia of People who Changed the World. Philosophers and Religious Leaders" edited by Christian D. Von Dehsen (1999), p. 16]. Augustine of Hippo (354-430), also known as St Augustine, St Austin, or St Augoustinos, was a Father of the Church whose writings are considered very influential in the development of Western Christianity and philosophy. He was bishop of Hippo Regius [present-day Annaba, Algeria] of the Roman province of Africa. According to his contemporary, Jerome, Augustine "established anew the ancient Faith." In his early years, he was heavily influenced by Manichaeism and afterward by the Neo-Platonism of Plotinus. After his conversion to Christianity and his baptism in 387, Augustine developed his own approach to philosophy and theology, accommodating a variety of methods and different perspectives. He believed that the grace of Christ was indispensable to human freedom and he framed the concepts of original sin and just war. When the Western Roman Empire began to disintegrate, Augustine developed the concept of the Catholic Church as a spiritual City of God [in a book of the same name], distinct from the material Earthly City. His thoughts profoundly influenced the medieval worldview. Augustine's "City of God" was closely identified with the segment of the Church that adhered to the concept of the Trinity as defined by the Council of Nicaea and the Council of Constantinople. In the Catholic Church and the Anglican Communion, he is a saint, pre-eminent Doctor of the Church, and the patron of the Augustinians. His memorial is celebrated August 28th, the day of his death. He is the patron saint of brewers, printers, theologians, the alleviation of sore eyes, and a number of cities and dioceses. Many Protestants, especially Calvinists, consider him to be one of the theological fathers of the Protestant Reformation due to his teachings on salvation and divine grace. In the Eastern Orthodox Church, he is also considered a saint, his feast day being celebrated on June 15th. He carries the additional title of "Blessed" among the Orthodox, either as "Blessed Augustine" or "St. Augustine the Blessed." Condition: Rare book remains in good condition [see images].
