This work is a development of a thesis written immediately before the Second World War, on ‘The Social and Economic Background of Early Christianity in North Africa down to A.D. 430, with special reference to the Donatist Controversy’. The author had studied St. Augustine as his special subject in the Modern History School at Oxford, and had been impressed by the tenacity of the resistance of the Donatists to the Catholicism preached by Augustine. The Donatists defied him and survived to the end of Christianity in North Africa. This book examines why this is so.
