THE EARLY RECEPTION OF AUGUSTINE IN GAUL
During my fellowship at NIAS I completed a paper, “Salvian, Pliny’s Panegyricus, and the Gallic Panegyrics”, and delivered it at a workshop on Pliny the Younger in late antiquity. I also wrote an article, “Augustine’s Gallic Audience and the Early Reception of his Works” for publication in a multi-authored book on the early controversies surrounding Augustine’s ideas.
While at NIAS I was a member of the theme group “The Modern and Postmodern Augustine”, and worked with other members of the group on various aspects of the reception of Augustine. Following from this, I presented a paper on the reception of Augustine from 430 to 700 at the conference “The Fragility of Authority: The Reception of Augustine as a Case-Study in the History of Mentality”, held at NIAS from 19-21 June 2009.
