Augustine as 'Roman Catholic'[edit]

Given that the division of the church hasn't happened yet, it is simplistic to describe Augustine as an RC, especially as his mantle is strongly claimed by many Protestants. I'm not sure what the answer is, but I think it's worth some consideration! Ender's Shadow Snr (talk) 14:27, 10 October 2015 (UTC)

Other Bishops of Hippo?[edit]

"Bishop of Hippo" redirects here, but there is little to nothing about the other bishops before or after. Hippo Regius mentions (under §Ecclesiastical history) that there were seven and lists some (without in-line citation). Does anyone have any further information (either enough to make a new article, or as a section in an appropriate article? — Sasuke Sarutobi (talk) 14:32, 10 December 2015 (UTC)

Date of conversion[edit]

In the lead the article says AD 387, in the specific section it says 386... --ExperiencedArticleFixer (talk) 05:04, 4 September 2016 (UTC)


I removed the phrase that said that in the Orthodox Church Augustine has the title of Blessed. 'Blessed' is not a formal title. It tries to translate 'Ιερός' but this is something that is also used in relation to John Chrysostom. The Orthodox Church does not have a two-tier system of recognition of sanctity, and to imply that 'Blessed' is a formal title is misleading, because it suggests that he is not recognized as a full saint. Augustine is a recognized saint for the Orthodox Church and whether he is referred to as Blessed (which is not a formal title such as the Western use of beatus) or not has nothing to do with it. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 22:32, 1 March 2017 (UTC)
