Summary
Was Augustine of Hippo's prior adherence to Stoic, Manichaean, and Neoplatonic philosophies instrumental in his change in theology about 412 CE as he fought the Pelagians? Kenneth M. Wilson applies the comprehensive methodology of reading systematically and chronologically through Augustine's entire extant corpus demonstrating that Augustine revised numerous books several decades after writing them.
