Overview

Filmed in Europe, this major new epic film on the life of St. Augustine is the first full-length feature movie on the story of this incredible man. In 430 AD, in the besieged city of Hippo, the seventy year-old Bishop Augustine tells Jovinus, a captain of the Roman guards, the story of how his Christian mother, Monica, saved him. Born in North Africa, Augustine studied in Carthage, becoming an accomplished but dissolute orator. After converting to Manichaeism, a guilt-free religion, he was called to the imperial court in Milan to serve as an opponent to the Christian bishop Ambrose. But when the Empress Justina sends imperial guards to clear out a basilica where Augustine's mother Monica is worshipping, her constant prayers and the witness of Ambrose win him over to Christianity. Back in Hippo, Bishop Augustine urges the Roman garrison to negotiate with the Vandal King Genseric, but they proudly refuse. He passes up a chance to escape on a ship sent to rescue him by the Pope, and stays by the side of his people. Starring Franco Nero and Johannes Brandrupt, directed by Christian Duguay. Includes study guide. Filmed in English
