The work of an international team of about 150 scholars includes 500 entries covering all research areas of Augustinian studies: - life, with particular reference to the complex political context and the heresies that characterized the age in which he lived (from the auranism to the donatism, from the masonism to the pelagianism); - the writings; - the thought; - the authority: the effects exerted by Augustinian thought on ethical and social issues of topicality, such as abortion, adultery, contraception, suicide, war, etc. - the cultural role: the critical rethinking to which Augustine underwent the classical and Christian doctrines - from Plato to Plotino, from Ireneo to Origen and Tertulliano -, and its influence on theologians of later times (from Jerome to Ambrose to Gregory the Great until Thomas Aquinas, Martin Luther and Calvin). Already published in English, Spanish and French; the Italian edition is expanded, revised and updated.
