I’ve really had no time for blogging of late, but there’s been some good reads around the traps:

In their combination of a sophisticated philosophy with religious aspiration, the pagan Neoplatonists had only one serious rival-Christianity, and, anti-Christian though they were, it was the incorporation of their ideas into Christian theology that ensured their permanent influence on European culture. (p. viii).

The principal figure in the transmission of Neoplatonist thought into Christian theology is St. Augustine. (p. 177)
