This third part investigates the significance of Augustine of Hippo in Hincmar of Rheims’ 1 writing. Emphasis is placed on Augustine’s political ethics besides political thought. Again, an attempt is made to trace connections to Augustine at different levels of the text. I approach Hincmar’s material in two ways: by searching first for explicit and then for implicit evidence of Augustine’s influence. To locate the direct and indirect references in the sources, I have used the eMGH and the Patrologia Latina Database.
