Augustine the African: Critic of Roman Colonialist Discourse.
Troup, Calvin L.
Rhetoric Society Quarterly, v25 p91-106 1995
Offers a reading of St. Augustine that suggests his work as prescient of, and harmonious with, contemporary criticism of colonialist discourse rather than as an authorizing voice for European imperialism. Looks also at a Stephen Greenblatt essay that comments on the relationship between Christianity and national lust for empire. (TB)
