Porphyry, Reincarnation and Resurrection in 'De Civitate Dei'
R. examines "the ambivalent attitude of Augustine in his later years towards Porphyry's view of the body/soul relationship" (p. 129), specifically in the 'City of God'. R. sees Porphyry as a decisive influence on the destiny of the soul, but the Scriptures and Christian doctrine have a clear influence on the way Augustine treated reincarnation and resurrection, themes which "mark Augustine's strongest break from the greek philosophical tradition" (p. 138).
