St. Augustine a fossil hunter?
some time ago, I've read an interview with Robert T. Bakker, where he states
that the "Doctor of the Church" Aurelius Augustinus (St. Augustine of Hippo,
354 - 430 CE) collected fossils and also raised presumptions as of its origin.
My question is: Does anyone knows how much is this true and what's the source
of this? Did St. Augustine ever mentioned fossils (how would he call them?) in
his works? Thanks for any info, Vlad
