They Say it's Your Birthday...St. Augustine of Hippo

St. Augustine has earned a lot of notoriety through history. Known in his early days as a bit of a womanizer, he eventually grew into his faith, became a bishop, an author who commands respect of literature scholars even today, and of course, a Saint of the Catholic Church.

Heck, he is even the subject of a Bob Dylan song. Anyone recall I Dreamed I Saw St. Augustine?

Today marks the 1661th anniversary of his birth (that's 354 AD for you non-mathematicians out there)[1].
