Augustine of Hippo

"The patron and namesake of the Private Tertiary Institution is Saint Augustine of Hippo (354-430), a Catholic bishop born in present day Algeria and educated in Northern Africa. After completing his studies he began teaching rhetoric in Rome and Milan, yet he restlessly and relentlessly continued to search for wisdom, truth, and beauty. The Manicheans and then the Neo-Platonist philosophers provided some answers, but it was not until he came to a conviction as to the truths of the Christian faith that he was able to begin his real ascent to ‘Wisdom ever ancient, ever new’." ~ST AUGUSTINE PRIVATE TERTIARY INSTITUTION OF SOUTH AFRICA
