Very rare panegyric given at the Church of San Marco in Milan to mark the feast day of St Augustine in 1660, by the Milanese lawyer Matteo Abbiate Forieri, an annual event on behalf of the lawyers of the city’s Scuole Palatine.

Abbiate Forieri identifies Augustine as the African pillar that supports the Church, muses on the history of Italian interactions with Africa from Aeneas onwards, and praises Augustine for acquiring Africa for Christ, while combatting the heresies of the Manicheans and the Pelagians. Abbiate Forieri was the author of several legal treatises and was a consultore for the Inquisition in Milan.
