This chapter discusses the thought of a Latin writer, Augustine. Augustine’s importance lies in the fact that his writings and interests stamp subsequent Western theology with a distinctive character. The West becomes Augustinian, either directly, when it seeks to develop the insights of the ‘Doctor of Grace’, or indirectly, when, trying to free itself from a dominant Augustinianism, it none the less concerns itself with the problems that engaged Augustine.
