Augustine entered both the Church and the world as a revolutionary force, and not merely created an epoch in the history of the Church, but... determined the course of its history in the West up to the present day. The whole development of Western life, in all its phases, was powerfully affected by his teaching. B. B. WarfieldAfter Jesus and Paul, Augustine of Hippo is the most influential figure in the history of Christianity. Christian History magazine Born 700 years after Plato and dying 400 years after Jesus crucifixion, Augustine was outstanding amongst Christian thinkers.
