Title: RESTLESS HEART: THE CONFESSIONS OF SAINT AUGUSTINE (Includes two DVDs)
In 430 A.D., the Roman Empire is beginning to crumble. As the Vandals and others marauding tribes spill through the gaps in Roman defenses, one of the greatest saints of the Christian church stands between his flock and the barbarian invaders. When he attempts to negotiate between the proud Roman authorities and the implacable Vandal King, Bishop Augustine recalls his own life before Christianity. In this stirring and epic new film on the life of St. Augustine of Hippo, follow the great saint as he rises from his reckless days as a youth to his accomplishments as a renowned but dissolute orator. Though worldly success and riches come his way, including a position in the Imperial court of Milan, satisfaction and peace elude him. It takes a confrontation with the Christian Bishop Ambrose and the countless prayers offered by his patient mother, Monica, to break through his intellectual pride. Special features include: two DVDs - a 133-minute theatrical film version; an original 200-minute version; Saint Augustine, a 27-minute documentary hosted by Fr. Benedict Groeschel, CFR. It also includes a 24-page illustrated Collector's Booklet and Study Guide.
