40—Augustine (Part 3): Last Days and the End of an Age
This is a listener-supported podcast! Thanks for your help!
When Augustine’s story is told, it too often ends with his baptism. But the drama of his later years is no less moving. He was as introspective at the end as he had been in his Confessions decades before. He gave his life and work a thoroughgoing review, even as he produced what many consider his masterpiece. His City of God marked the close of an age and the twilight of a brilliant life.
