Augustine was born in Tagaste, a modest Roman community in a river valley 40 miles from the Mediterranean coast in Africa, the point where the appearance of Roman civilization thinned out in the highlands of Numidia. Augustine’s parents were of the respectable class of Roman society, free to live on the work of others, but their means were sometimes poor. They managed, sometimes on borrowed money, to acquire a first-class education for Augustine, and, although he had a brother and sister, he seems to have been the only child to be educated. St. Augustine, also known as Saint Augustine of Hippo, and original Latin name Aurelius Augustine wasn’t as concerned for his Christian religion and his weakness of not caring about his religion was the end of his career at Milan that was associated with an intensification of religiosity.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
