Augustine, the confessing sinner
Augustine was a theologian, philosopher, and the bishop of Hippo Regius in what is today Algeria. His writings influenced the development of Western Philosophy and Christianity, and is one of the four Fathers of the Latin Church. His Confessions, which can be described as an autobiographical meditation on human freedom and divine grace, and as one of the main literary works of the Western tradition, reveal the long and often tortuous path of conversion he himself went through.
