fun facts, quotes, and pictures from history
Augustine was an important figure in the history of Christianity. He was an early Christian theologian, who became a priest then a bishop after converting. Some of his doctrines separate Western and Eastern Christianity, and he defined some doctrines of Western Christianity. For example, both Eastern and Western Churches believe there is original sin in the actions of Adam and Eve, but the Eastern Church, not influenced in this by Augustine, does not hold that humans share the guilt, although they experience death as a result

He is one of the eight great Doctors of the Church, and his writings are still studied today. Confessions and City of God are his two most famous works, but he authored over 113 books and treatises. Augustine died while the Germanic Vandals attacked northern Africa.
