Many of the standard Neoplatonic ideas, such as the existence of higher ideas in the mind of God and the reflection of those ideas in the real world were standard aspects of medieval thought. Neoplatonic philosophy exerted a great influence on the intellectual formation of Augustine, consolidating his conversion to Christianity.

Augustine as a thinker seized as much of the concepts of this movement as possible to create a "Christian philosophy" of his own and to explain it. Neoplatonism was a viable force from the middle of the 3d cent. towhen Justinian closed the Academy at Athens.

Although Plotinus is the central figure of Neoplatonism, his teacher, Ammonius Saccus (–), a self-taught laborer of Alexandria, may have been the actual founder; however, no writings of Ammonius have survived.

Neoplatonic thought was originated sometime in the 3rd century AD by the philosopher Plotinus. The name "neoplatonism" is a modern invention by scholars who saw Plotinus' works as sufficiently dissimilar to Plato's to warrant the title New Platonism, although Plotinus himself saw his philosophy as a continuation of the Platonic tradition.

In the seventh book of his Confessions he has recorded how much he owed to the perusal of Neoplatonic works.
