Saeculum is a critical text in the study of the political philosophy of Augustine. Published in 1970, a mere three years after Peter Brown’s now famous biography of the saint, Saeculum reinforces H. Richard Niebuhr’s classification of Augustine as a conversionist in Christ and Culture. He notes a dramatic shift in Augustine’s thought that started in the first decade of the fifth century and moved in one direction from then on.

In this book Professor Markus's main concern is with those aspects of Augustine's thought which help to answer questions about the purpose of human society, and particularly with his reflections on history, society and the Church. He relates Augustine's ideas to their contemporary context and to older traditions, and shows which aspects of his thought he absorbed from his intellectual environment.
