Research Paper: Historical Biography of Augustine of Hippo
Nature and purpose of research paper:The paper should be
organized as follows:
1. Historical Biography (8-10 pages): With historical
precision and accuracy, introduce the
Augustine’s life, focusing on the most important events and
contributions. Rather than
writing a dry, historical record, colorfully depict the
story of Augustine’s life, showing
the reader what led Augustine to be so historically
significant. Be sure there is a
theological focus as well, demonstrating why Augustine was
characterized by certain
doctrinal and ecclesiastical beliefs.
2. Legacy and influence (2-3 pages): Having painted
Augustine’s life, explain what
Augustine’s legacy has been for the generations that
followed. In other words, define
the type of influence Augustine had and why. It may be
necessary to explain how
Augustine has been interpreted and whether or not such
interpretations are accurate.
3. Contemporary relevance (2 pages): Last, determine
what ways Augustine’s life and
thought may have relevance for Christian thought today.
Please avoid “hero worship.”
Instead, explain what the church today might learn
critically from this person’s
intellectual and ecclesiastical contribution.
4. Bibliography (1-2 pages)
Style and research requirements:
1) 12-15 double-spaced pages in length
2) 10 academic sources — Sources should be academic in
nature. Please avoid popular
level books that are not written by a scholar, contain no
research footnotes/endnotes, etc.
