VZNIK, PÁD A PROBLÉM DONATIZMU
Rise, the fall, and the problem of Donatism
Languages of publication
The Donatist schism marked the entire of the 4th century of Christianity in North Africa. The Roman authoritarian methods did not help in suppressing this schism, on the contrary, they aided the church of the martyrs in the faith in its own infallibility. But Donatim was not just a spiritual movement. The violent bands of the circumcelliones carried out attacks on the Catholic Church and its representatives as a church of betrayal, along with protests against Rome and its empire, with which they identified it. After the arrival of st. Augustine as a bishop in Hippo, the Catholic Church slowly grows up and tries to begin dialogue with Donatists. The point of the effort is the Conference in Carthage 411. However, Augustine offered a path of reconciliation in his theology. He found the Donatists mistakes that led them away from true humility and reconciliation in the community of Catholica.
