about

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.

"It is essential reading for anyone who is going to teach or reflect seriously on Augustine's City of God...Dorado has laid a solid foundation for a more profound appreciation of the whole range of Augustine's thought and influence."
Robert Kennedy, Studies in Religion
