First of all I treat briefly of the Patristic period. But I have strictly St. Augustine of Hippo. After this more or less introductory part rationed my indulgence in such comparisons and discussions, not of the volume I proceed to the preparatory phase of mediaeval only out of considerations of space but also out of regard for thought proper, the Carolingian renaissance, the establishment historical propriety.
