    In a book which sheds light on the origins of anti-Semitism and opens a path towards better understanding between Judaism and Christianity, Paula Fredriksen examines the thought of Augustine of Hippo (354-430) who opposed his church's hostility to Jews. Investigating Augustine's intellectual inheritance and spiritual development she shows how he reached his influential conclusion that the Christian empire was right to ban paganism and to coerce heretics, but should not attack Judaism.
