THE CATHOLIC ONE

THE ECCLESIOLOGY OF SAINT AUGUSTINE: AN OUTLINE


(by Brunero Gherardini)


[Abstract: What Peter Brown did for Augustine of Hippo, securing him a place in the sociological context of late antique Africa, Brunero Gherardini does for Augustine the theologian, anchoring him firmly among the first students of ecclesiology. La Cattolica [The Catholic One] means the Universal One. Gherardini's stated intent is, "to let Augustine run the show" and thus, through texts by Saint Augustine, Gherardini shows how the bishop of Hippo recognized in the Catholic Church the mystical body of Christ that found its unity in the Tradition going back to Christ himself].
