Christian identity. Augustine on the topic of faith, hope and love

Dealing with the topic of Christian identity the author reflects on Augustine’s explanation of the Biblical notions of faith, hope and love. Augustine, the church father of North Africa, argues that there is no love without hope, no hope without love, and neither love nor hope without faith. Without these three (“illa tria"), there can be no Christian identity, no Christian individuality and no Christian community (church).
