St Augustine of Hippo: life and controversies
This outline of the career of St. Augustine (354-430) discusses three major fields of his writings: against the Manichees, the Donatists and the British theologian Pelagius, who maintained a theology of divine Grace which saw infant baptism as desirable but not essential for salvation. Augustine's attacks on Pelagianism initiated a debate which remains controversial to this day.
