Description
One of the most important Christian sites in the world is largely hidden and rarely visited. Part of the foundation of a 4th-century cathedral from the time of Bishop Ambrose, it lies under the piazza in front of Milan's cathedral, and was uncovered by archaeologists only after World War II. There on Easter morning of 387 AD, a cluster of people seeking baptism had gathered after an all-night vigil, including AugustineŚlater the bishop of Hippo and the most influential writer of the Christian West through the late Middle Ages. Garry Wills tells the story of the at-times prickly relationship between Ambrose and Augustine and its importance for the future history of the Church.

"This short book is a most original study of a momentous occasion."ŚCatholic Herald
