St. Augustine

Of Hippo

Country of origin. Live. Death.

Born on November 13th of 354. He died on August 28th of 430.

The influence.

His thoughts profoundly influenced the medieval worldview. He was very much influenced by Manechaeism and afterward by the Neo-Platonism of Plotinus.

His political view.

He first wanted a life purged of all vulgar aspirations after honours, wealth, or pleasure, and with celibacy for its rule. But it was only a dream; his passions still enslaved him.

Opinion on human nature.

He sat the foundation of Christianity, there for he view humanity as Christians view others now a day. .

How he influenced the government.

If it wasn't for him, Christianity as we know it might not be the way that it is today. Since most of our population are Christians, I bet our government has been influence by it in a large amount of way. Just by the fact that most presidents have been Christians I tell you everything.
