Saint Augustine and the theory of just war.


Saint Augustine and the theory of just war.

Mattox, John Mark.

Continuum Publishing Group


196 pages




Mattox, a US Army officer and specialist on military ethics, explores just-war thought as manifested in the writings of second-century Roman Christian Augustine of Hippo. He acknowledges the problem of isolating this one issue from the web of Augustine's whole system, but believes that his ideas have had such immense influence since his time that the effort is worth the risk.
