No two men were more influential in the early Church than Ambrose, the powerful Bishop of Milan, and Augustine of Hippo, the North African philosopher and author of the Confessions. The two men met in 387 when Augustine went to Milan to be baptised. Combining ground-breaking research with narrative verve, Wills's account describes the troubled relationship between the two churchmen, and the theological differences that would have a profound impact on the future of Christianity.
