Anyone in particular who, in a historical context, fascinates you more than most? A hell of a lot of scope here, but i thought it might make for an interesting topic. I have a bit of a thing for Saint Augustine myself. Like many of the most interesting characters, he was a bit of a cunt - but i find his life, his works and his legacy absolutely engrossing. His Confessions is particularly satisfying - sinner turned saint, anguishing in the guilt of his ways and licking some SERIOUS divine arse. Like with most of his theological works his self-indulgent shaping of Christian doctrine is largely contemptible but as a man with fear guiding his hand towards God, this is hardly surprising. I'd love him to see the world as it is today, and find out what he has to say.
