Conceptions of empire have served radically different and sometimes contradictory purposes.   Wars against barbarians, Ambrose argued, were legitimate because they protected both the empire and the Christian orthodoxy. Ambrose, the first thinker behind the just war theory, justified his belief in two ways: (1) He was inspired by the wars in the Old Testament, and (2) He argued that Jesus’s non-violent teachings in the New Testament.

    Saint Augustine of Hippo, whose full name was Aurelius Augustinus, was born in a.d. , in the city of Tagaste, in the Roman North African province of Numidia (now Algeria). His moderately well-to-do family was religiously mixed. His father, Patricius, was a pagan who still adhered to the old gods of Rome, and his mother, Monica, was a devout Christian.   When the Western Roman Empire began to disintegrate, Augustine developed the concept of the Church as a spiritual City of God, distinct from the material Earthly City.[7] (Book 1) - Saint.
