Augustine's Early Thought on the Redemptive Function of Divine Judgement

Bart van Egmond

Oxford Early Christian Studies

  • Considers how Augustine of Hippo (354-430) conceived of the positive relation between God's judgment and his grace
  • First in-depth study on the theological roots of Augustine's justification of coercion against the Donatists
  • Focuses on his polemics with the gnostic Church of the Manichees, and his appropriation of Biblical and classical-philosophical traditions
  • Offers a nuanced contribution to the ongoing conversation on continuity and discontinuity in Augustine's doctrine of grace
