about this item

Gaumer explores the relationship between Augustine of Hippo (354-430) and Cyprian of Carthage (200-258), but is primarily concerned with the authority and influence of Cyprian in late antique Roman Africa and with the battles that occurred in a long struggle over the right for various Christian factions and their government allies to stake an exclusive claim to orthodoxy and tradition established by Cyprian. The battles are particularly clear in Augustine's confrontation with the "Donatist" and "Pelagian" Christians, he says, but they spanned continents, churches, cultures, and controversies. He finds impact of them as recent as in the Arab Spring. Annotation ©2016 Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR (protoview.com)
