Book Description:
Augustine (354-430), later to become Saint Augustine, Bishop of Hippo, was born on November 13, 354 AD, in Tagaste, Numidia (now Souk-Ahras, Algeria). The place of prominence held by Augustine among the Fathers and Doctors of the Church is considered comparable to that of St. Paul among the apostles. As a writer, Augustine was prolific, persuasive, and a brilliant stylist. His best-known work is his autobiographical Confessions (circa 400), exposing his early life and conversion. In his great Christian apologia The City of God (413-26), Augustine formulated a theological philosophy of history. Ten of the 22 books of this work are devoted to a polemic against pantheism. The remaining 12 books trace the origin, progress, and destiny of the church and establish it as the proper successor to paganism. In 428, Augustine wrote the Retractions, in which he registered his final verdict upon his earlier books. His other writings include the Epistles, of which 270 are in the Benedictine edition, variously dated between 386 and 429; his treatises On Free Will (388-95), On Christian Doctrine (397), On Baptism: Against the Donatists (400), On the Trinity (400-16), and On Nature and Grace (415); and Homilies upon several books of the Bible. This new book contains a historical background of Saint Augustine from selected excerpts of the important work by George W. Osman published in 1906 “Augustine: The Thinker” in addition to a comprehensive bibliography of Saint Augustine which is accessible by in-depth title, subject and author indexes.
