St. Augustine: The Decline of the Roman Empire, Part 1 (2010)
This is a 2010 two-part television miniseries chronicling the life of St. Augustine, the early Christian theologian, writer and Bishop of Hippo Regius at the time of the Vandal invasion in 430 AD. In the besieged city of Hippo, the seventy year-old bishop Augustine tells Jovinus, a captain of the Roman guards, the story of how his Christian mother, Monica, saved him. Born in the North African city of Thagaste, Augustine studied in Carthage, becoming an accomplished but dissolute orator. After converting to Manichaeism, a guiltfree religion, he was called to the imperial court in Milan to serve as an opponent to the Christian bishop Ambrose. But when the Empress Justina ends imperial guards to clear out a basilica where Augustines own mother is worshipping, he is won over to Christianity. Back in Hippo, Augustine urges the Roman garrison to negotiate with the Vandal King Genseric, but they proudly refuse. At that point, he too, passing up a chance to escape on a ship sent to rescue him by the Pope, stays by the side of his people.

I just learned of a viewing at the Theater, for charity donations of $15.
Thanks for this film! 👍

Thank you for the privilege of this viewing. I count it as one of the BEST historical portrayals of Church history. God is so good, even in adversity, chaos, heresy, and concupiscence of the soul & body.

I hope the parties in control are not taking chances with copyright law. We are given a great value here.

I've never heard of this film 'till now. 🙂
