|MESSAGE DU PRÉSIDENT/ MESSAGE FROM THE
RECONSIDERATIONS: A CONFERENCE
On the occasion of the 2003 St. Augustine Lecture by
Rollins Professor of History
Sponsored by Villanova University and Augustinian Studies,
in collaboration with the Patristic Institute Augustinianum, Rome, Italy
December 4 - 6, 2003
Scholars who study the figure, history, and thought of Augustine of
Hippo find themselves compelled to deal with Peter Brown's important
work Augustine of Hippo: A Biography (1967, 2000). Its publication
almost four decades ago marked a new era in Augustinian scholarship,
making it a reference point and signaling a virtual renaissance in the
study of the Bishop of Hippo, then and still today. On the occasion of
the 2003 St. Augustine Lecture by Prof. Brown, Villanova University is
sponsoring an International Conference that will examine the current
state and future prospects for Augustinian scholarship.
