you did add the works cited to the end of the Quiz part 2; thank you. So, the tricky part is to add it though after the sentence which used information from that source.
For example, one of your sentences is:
“Augustine heard the readings of Ponticianus and his friend’s which was about the life of Anthony of the Desert.”
Is that information from the Chao source, or from the Maurer source? And, what page is it on, in those sources?
If it is from Chao, on page 18, then you’d write:
“Augustine heard the readings of Ponticianus and his friend’s which was about the life of Anthony of the Desert” (Chao, 18).

May,27,2020 AUGUSTINE a) What does it mean to “convert”? To convert in this context mainly involves the change of one’s religion or belief’s to another with the aim of achieving spiritual rebirth, in this case, St. Augustine converted from pagan to Christian Catholicism. b) What was Augustine’s moment of conversion? Describe. Augustine at the age of 31, was a pagan Manicheanism, this was a religion that stated that the world is a battleground between good and evil. In 384 he was able to meet Bishop Ambrose after he moved to Italy and this Integral to him having considered the conversion to Christianity. Augustine heard the readings of Ponticianus and his friend’s which was about the life of Anthony of the Desert. This was the point he considered to convert to Catholicism. But later on, it was identified that Augustine was prompted by the voice of a child that said, “Take up and read.” Although Augustine was a philosopher, he was inspired by spiritual events that led up to his conversion. c) What did he convert FROM, and TO? St. Augustine converted from Pagan Manicheanism to Christian Catholicism. As identified before the Manicheanism religion believed that the world is a battleground for good and evil. Whereas the Christian religion which he learned from his friends and the testimony of other people, believed in the divine being God who ruled over the earth and controlled every aspect. This conversion cemented his philosophical stands, and later on, became a theologian who discussed controversial matters about the Christian catholic religion which had a significant contribution to the understanding and the continuation of this religion. In other words, the conversion was beneficial for Catholicism and for Augustine. d) There is a painting (not a stained glass window) of Augustine, at the end of the section about him. Describe how the painting reflects his life. The Painting, Consecration of Saint Augustine, is a painting that depicts the point at which St. Augustine was declared to be a Bishop. Looking at the painting there is divinity all around, from the chair, the wardrobe, the scripture, and the number of people during his consecration. St. Augustine was an influential character of not only Christianity but of how we understood the world after his life. Before he even converted to Christianity, he was a Pagan Manichean, he believed in a religion that only believed that the world was a battleground for the fight between good and evil. Which basically is a vague description of Christianity, in which he later converted to, in Christianity, there is good and evil; God and Satan; Heaven and Hell. In this case, it maybe is because of why he joined Christianity because it was a better version of his previous religion, and before he joined Christianity he was the philosopher and after he studied Christianity, he became a philosopher, author, and theologian. He used his wisdom to question different aspects of the world and how people, specifically the Romans/Rome interpreted Christianity. This may be the reason why in the painting the facial expressions of the different people in attendance of his consecration are unsettling, not all people wanted to agree on his philosophies because he questioned the wrong people were doing presuming it is right. Like for instance the original sin. In the painting, there is an individual holding a book, and it is basically a bible and he is reading scripture to have a reading that might guide Augustine during his Journey as Bishop. Up to date, St. Augustine may be the only Christian leader who questioned the interpretation of the bible by early societies, like Rome. This shows that he was guided by the scripture and every aspect that he did was guided upon by the readings from the bible. It is the reason why upon his death the Catholic Church declared him a Saint mainly due to the contributions he made while he was alive. His relevance or his superior presence in Catholicism was created upon the basis of the observation he made and openly talked about. In the painting he is depicted to be wearing a robe that has different spiritual figures, who also made some intricate contributions in Christianity. This shows that beyond, Augustine coming up with the great lessons, he got inspiration from other divine figures in Christianity that somehow showed him the way and gave him a better understanding of the scripture. Even his process of conversion was influenced by his friend’s reading or other spiritual influences, what one can get from all this is that St. Augustine was mostly influenced by the external environment and the people who surrounded him. The painting is full of divinity and some form of prestige, St. Augustine was able to make is legacy and his name across all spheres of life, like politics whereby his observations or rather philosophy are used to further the greater good, through understating the human nature. Bishop Cap in Catholic represents authority and respect, which is a place on his head, the walls or the background of the painting are lined will golden motif, and the ground whereby Augustine and his colleagues are standing on is depicted as over a prestigious rag, this includes the robs they are wearing seen to be of high quality. This indicates that St. Augustine was really influential and contributed a lot to the world, not only in Christianity but all spheres of life, and he is part of the historical characters that are responsible for various progress in our modern life.
