St. Augustine (354—430 C.E.) is a fourth century philosopher whose groundbreaking philosophy infused Christian doctrine with Neoplatonism. St. Augustine is one of the most important early figures in the development of Western Christianity, and was a major figure in bringing Christianity to dominance in the previously pagan Roman Empire. 

More than 100 titled works written by St. Augustine survive, the majority of them devoted to the pursuit of issues in one or another of the ecclesiastical controversies that preoccupied his episcopal years. Among his most important works are The City of God, De doctrina Christiana, and Confessions.
