Abstract

The Late Roman Empire is one of the most exciting periods in History, so it’s important its study and knowledge as a way to understand better some of the problems that still arise nowadays. On the other hand, it’s also evident that when we try to analyze the different legal institutions, even though legal sources must occupy a prominent place, its fragmentary nature and the possibility of interpolations in some texts, makes recourse to literary sources necessary and useful. In this regard, the extensive work of Augustin of Hippo can be important to know how many of the issues that were subject to legal regulation at the end of the 4th century AD were perceived in everyday reality, among which are the migration problems in late roman Africa.

 

Keywords: Augustin of Hippo; Late Roman Empire; Migrations; Correspondence.
