Augustine of Hippo (AD 354–430) was born in Thagaste, Numidia, in Northern Africa. He studied rhetoric in Carthage when he was 17. As an adult, Augustine abandoned the Christianity of his youth to pursue Manichaeism. Through his Manichaean connections, Augustine became professor of rhetoric at the imperial court of Milan. While in Milan, Augustine was heavily influenced by the bishop of Milan, Ambrose. This influence led Augustine to begin exploring Christianity, and eventually he reconverted. He was baptized in AD 387 and returned to Africa. There he was ordained and became and eventually became bishop of Hippo, an office he held until his death in AD 430. Throughout his ministerial career was a party to multiple controversies, including the Aryan and Pelagian controversies. He was a staunch defender and advocate of Nicene orthodoxy and is one of the church’s most influential pastor-theologians.
