  • The Irrational Augustineby Catherine Conybeare

    Oxford University Press 2006; US$ 109.99

    The Irrational Augustine takes the notion of St Augustine as rigid and dogmatic Father of the Church and turns it on its head. Catherine Conybeare reads Augustine's earliest works to discover the anti-dogmatic Augustine, who values changeability and human interconnectedness and deplores social exclusion. The novelty of her book lies in taking seriously... more...

  • Reconsidering Eusebiusby Sabrina Inowlocki; Claudio Zamagni

    BRILL 2011; US$ 144.00

    Over the last decades, Eusebius has been the focus of a great deal of attention. New light has been shed both on his writings and on his personality, which has led to a welcome re-assessment of his significance.
