Sample text

On June 26, somewhere near Samarra (about eighty miles north of modern Baghdad), the rear of the Roman marching column, then straggling over four miles, was suddenly attacked. Julian rushed to bring reinforcements; in his haste to get help to his men, he did not stop to strap on his full body armor. The Persians, in a carefully planned maneuver, engaged the vanguard of the Roman army and harried the middle of the column. The Romans successfully countered, forcing a Persian retreat; but, in the confused pursuit that followed, the emperor’s unprotected chest was pierced by a spear.

His son Adeodatus dies sometime during this time period, as does Augustine’s close friend, Nebridius. He travels to Hippo Regius (modern Annaba, Algeria), an important coastal entrepo^t, with the intention of founding a monastery; at the urging of a local congregation he is unexpectedly ordained presbyter. Augustine is consecrated bishop of the “catholic” church of Hippo, initially as co-adjutor (contrary to canon law) of Bishop Valerius, who dies not long afterward. He begins work on De doctrina christiana (On Christian Teaching), a guide to biblical interpretation, which is not finally completed until the late 420s.
