Few know of the women whose hopes and dreams shaped Augustine's early life. Kate Cooper skilfully reconstructs their lives against the backdrop of the late Roman Empire to paint a vivid portrait of the turbulent society they and Augustine moved through.

Kate Cooper is Professor of History at Royal Holloway, University of London. Her work explores the world of the Mediterranean in the Roman period, with a special interest in daily life and the family, religion, gender, and social identity, along with martyrdom, resistance movements, and religious violence.
