Augustine and his Mother

We’ve been chomping down some early medieval literature of late, working on the next philosofood book. The don of early Christian philosophy was St. Augustine, a man who made god-fearing explanations for the downfall of Rome, and went a good way to define the ethics of the church.

For mother’s day we wrote a little article about Augustine, who wrote a little about her mother, who “on the ninth day, then, of her sickness, the fifty-sixth year of her age, and the thirty-third of mine, was that religious and devout soul set free from the body.”

This part of his Confessions is a touching read. We complimented it with a traditional Algerian soup recipe.
