Summary

The conversion of Augustine of Hippo (354–430) to catholic Christianity in 386 is a famous story. After he was baptized in Milan, he abandoned his post as professor of rhetoric in that city, and he and his friends formed a small, quasi-monastic circle devoted to the philosophical life of study and asceticism. After the group moved to Augustine’s native North Africa in 388, he composed a series of responses to questions posed by his confrères, writing his answers up in the style of the question-and-answer tradition of Greek and Latin literature.
