Abstract

GARCIA ALVAREZ, CÉSAR. SAINT AUGUSTINE AND THE EMPIRE OF THE EAST. Byzantion nea hellás [online]. 2012, n.31, pp.169-188. ISSN 0718-8471.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-84712012000100009.

The author of the present research divides his work in two parts. In the first one, he explains the "apparent indifference" in St. Augustine's works related to the Byzantine empire. Diverse hypotheses are presented: Was Byzantium a still not significant empire? Did St. Augustine know Greek? Was he a Rome-trained scholarly rhetor at ancient Rome's service? In the second part, the author reviews diverse councils which took place in the East and St. Augustine's doctrinal presence in the definitions dictated by those important assemblies.

Keywords : Byzantium; Saint Augustine; Empire; Council.
