35 in this volume). As the Confessions models a quasi-personal familiarity with Augustine of a kind that modern biography still seeks to facilitate, so the ﬁrst Life of Augustine attests to a process of “Augustinian” community formation that had already begun before the bishop’s death in 430 CE. The present Companion draws gratefully on several ﬁne biographies of Augustine that have been written in recent years (notably Brown 1967 and 2000; Lancel 1999 and 2002a; O’Donnell 2005a), without aiming to offer any substitute for the experience of a sustained encounter with a historically recreated individual, which those books supremely afford.

The Roman offensive in summer 375 was a calculated display of brutality. Crossing the river at Aquincum (modern Budapest), Roman troops slaughtered anyone they encountered (Amm. Marc. 13–14). Later that year, representatives from the Quadi sought peace, claiming that the raids across the Danube had been independent initiatives taken by those living near the frontier, responding – understandably, in the envoys’ view – to the attempted building of a Roman fort in their territory. This was too much for Valentinian.
