Augustine of Hippo (354-430 AD) took great pains to create and project a powerful
image of himself beyond the churches and towns where he wrote and taught in Roman
north Africa. He succeeded in this self-presentation beyond his wildest dreams.
Augustine may have been the first saint to find a home page on the Internet and he has
dwelled here, in a comfortable corner of the afterlife, since early 1994. In that year, he
was the subject of the first of a series of seminars conducted over the Internet. The
materials here were first gathered for that purpose, but have grown since. Suggestions
and additions are always welcome. To explore the page, please use the navigation bar
