Disciplining Christians reconsiders several of Augustine's most well-known letter exchanges. It reads these correspondences with close attention to conventional epistolary norms and practices, in an effort to identify and analyze Augustine's adaptation of the traditionally friendly letter exchange to the correction of perceived error in the Christian community.
