Rethinking Augustine's Early Theology

An Argument for Continuity

Carol Harrison

  • Challenges the almost universally accepted interpretation of the development of Augustine's theology
  • Proposes a new thesis, arguing for a fundamental continuity in Augustine's belief and practice from the moment of his conversion, and so enhances a major scholarly debate
  • Resists the general trend to begin reading Augustine with his Confessions (396) and argues for the importance of the works written in the decade before, immediately following his conversion
