This thesis is an investigation of the Roman mission to evangelize Anglo-Saxon England. The mission was commissioned by Pope Gregory the Great and charged to a monk named Augustine. In this study the reasons for sending the Roman mission and why it succeeded in bringing the resulting English church under the influence of the Roman faith will be identified.
