Abstract


  • Saint Augustine of Hippo (354-430 CE) [1]

    one of the most revered doctors of the ecclesia

    catholica, might not have been so highly

    esteemed had he fl ourished centuries afterwards

    in a world of uberveillance [2]. One of the

    unique aspects of Augustine’s life that endeared him

    to the community of the faithful, both past and present,

    was his rising up from the “fornications” [3] and

    the “delight in thievery” [4] to become a paradigm for

    both the eastern and western churches of the penitent

    who becomes a saint.
