St. Augustine of Hippo, Bishop and Doctor of the Church.
Feast Day 28th August.
Together with Ambrose, Gregory the Great and Jerome he is one of the four key Doctors (from the Latin docere, to teach or instruct) of the Western Church. He wrote many influential books on doctrine, theology, religious philosophy and spirituality.
Born in Algeria in 354 after a profligate earlier life he was a convert
to Christianity at 33, baptised by St. Ambrose in Milan. He became
Bishop of Hippo (Annaba, Algeria) at 41. Augustine was remarkable for
his energy and passion. His autobiographical work, in a series of books
known as The Confessions of St. Augustine, has served as a
model of the Christian life for over 1600 years. He and his clergy led a
monastic style community life which gave rise to the 'Rule of St.
Augustine'. He died in 430.
Original artwork by the Benedictine Sisters of Turvey Abbey.
