Oleh Shepetyak. New rise of St. Augustine during the Renaissance The research is devoted to finding the answer to the question: what exactly and in what forms was revived at this time? Thanks to the research of Alexander Coare in the philosophy of science rooted quite correct belief that at that time was born a new methodology of science, which was based on the philosophy of Plato. We will try to pay attention to whether it is possible to apply the principles of Coare to the sphere of religious thought. During this research we will refer to the works of the founders of Protestantism, Luther and Calvin and some analysts. Revenge of Plato, which became the main characteristic feature of the Renaissance was expressed not only in the development of science. His greatest influence is noticeable in the religious transformation which had led to a fundamental change in the history of mankind. When Coare and his associates proclaimed the revenge of Plato like the key feature of the Renaissance, were well aware that the Plato of the Renaissance is not identical to Plato of Antiquity, like Aristotle of the Middle Ages is not the same as the Aristotle of Antiquity. As in the Middle Ages we can distinguish the "few Aristotle", it is also possible to allocate "few Plato": St. Augustine, Galileo and others. The dependence of St. Augustine of Hippo from Platonism today is perceived as an indisputable fact. We have no reason to doubt this belief. St. Augustine was a Christian, as St. Thomas. However, they both used their elected philosophical systems for the inculturation of the Gospel. According to Augustine, the best way to preach about Christianity is Platonism. St. Augustine lived at the turn of IV-V centuries, and formed a theoretical theological expression of Western Christianity. His influence was enormous on theology and philosophy of the early Middle Ages. However, the gradual spread of Aristotelian deprived Augustinianism dominant position, though not eradicated it completely: St. Augustine always remained the undisputed authority in Western Christianity. The new upsurge of Augustinianism took place during the reformation and Counter-reformation.
