Augustine

It was also on this day--in the year 430--that theologian, author, apologist and philosopher St. Augustine, Bishop of Hippo went home to be with the Lord. The influential African patriarch was the philosophical founder of Western Civilization. His most influential works, essential to the Western Canon of great books, include Confessions and The City of God.
