Augustine: Spiritual Centaur?
H. examines whether Augustine's mystical experiences are a combination of Neoplatonic and Christian elements. H. concludes that A. is not a "spiritual centaur", but that the mystical elements of Plotinus and Porphyry are placed "within a matrix of Christian belief", H.'s conclusions, while eminently correct, are largely an amalgam of secondary sources.
