An Attack upon the Catholic Faith

He published about A. D. 400 an attack upon the Catholic faith, a work known to us from the elaborate reply by the bishop of Hippo, Contra Faustum Manichaeum, extending to thirty-five books, arranged in such a manner that the arguments of the heretic are first stated in his own words, and then confuted. (See vol. viii. of the Benedictine edition of St. Augustine.)
