Description:

This paper explains that, in 386 A.D., St. Augustine of Hippo experienced a penultimate life-changing event which resulted in his conversion to Christianity and ended his hedonistic lifestyle. The author points out that this conversion to the faith and tenets of Christianity led St. Augustine to attack a number of humanistic and secular organizations, which were very influential in Europe during the latter years of the Roman Empire. The paper concludes that the conversion of St. Augustine literally opened the proverbial door to much human experience and thought in matters of religion and theology and paved the way for many influential religious and philosophical thinkers that followed him.
