Today’s issue of ADF’s Alliance Alert provides an excerpt from a law review by a Catholic law professor who demonstrates that the essential elements of marriage were identified by St. Augustine in A.D. 401. The law professor contends that Augustine’s analysis prevailed in the West through the Reformation and to America until at least 1960. Unfortunately, the full law review article is not available to the public online except through subscription resources.
