Summary
"St. Augustine of Hippo was the earliest thinker to develop a distinctively Christian political and social philosophy. He did so mainly from the perspective of Platonism and Stoicism; but by introducing the biblical and Pauline conceptions of sin, grace and predestination he radically transformed the 'classical' understanding of the political. R.W. Dyson's book describes and analyses this 'transformation' in detail and shows Augustine's enormous influence upon the development of political thought down to the thirteenth century."--Jacket
