Fredriksen (scripture, Boston U.) places the third-century AD Augustine's defense of Jews in the context of the long history of the Greco-Roman Mediterranean civilization from the conquests of Alexander the Great in the forth century BCE to the beginning of the twilight of the western Christian empire in fifth-century. From there, she narrows her focus first to Augustine's life and thought, and again to the evolution and revolution of his theology of Jews and Judaism.
