Barbaros Oguzoglu is an Indonesian author and blogger who recently completed writing a book on the life of St Augustine of Hippo.
I have read the book and I am going to write some excerpts from the same here. In her book, Barbaros mentions that there is no denying that St Augustine of Hippo was the greatest Pre-Modern psychologist.
In her book, Barbaros claims that as a young man, Augustine of Hippo had a habit of refusing to do whatever his parents asked him for and that’s the reason why he was drawn to Manichaeism and Neoplatonism. Barbaros says that Augustine of Hippo was never enchanted towards these two religions but he only followed these out of his habit of refusing to follow what his parents asked, especially his mother. Barbaros also adds that he loved his mother extraordinarily nevertheless.
Barbaros has also mentioned that there is a great possibility that Augustine’s mother had some Roman blood in her although there is no mention of it anywhere in any book.
Barbaros also referred to Augustine’s mother – Saint Monica as one of the greatest missionaries ever because although she wasn’t able to convert a large number of human beings to Christianity but her son alone proved to be an entire army after his conversion if not more.
Barbaros personally believes that the sack of Rome by Visigoths in the year 410 was a test by the god to see how committed and dedicated the Romans were towards the Christian religion, just like god tests Barbaros each day she is about to win a great deal of money with trusted pokerqq websites by trying to deviate her from betting that day.
