Overview

Augustine of Hippo is one of the most important thinkers for Western theology and philosophy. His understanding of the self, of sin, of redemption, and of sanctification set the tone for all subsequent theology. Even those who disagree with him must still interact with the effects of his thought. St. Augustine’s Confessions introduced the idea of the inner self to the world. It was the first work that struggled to understand the inner life—the life of the mind. Its place at the beginning of the development of the autobiography is undeniable. This collection’s other work, Select Letters, contains 62 of Augustine’s letters, showing the various troubles of Augustine’s time and how the great bishop dealt with them.

Augustine’s Confessions and Select Letters contains the Loeb Classical Library editions of these works. The Loeb editions pair the original Latin with a readable but literal translation. You can compare the two side by side, or pull up additional translations and compare them with the Loeb translation for further insight. Moreover, the Latin is linked with language tools in your library for easy language research. Bible passages appear on mouseover.

About Augustine of Hippo

Augustine of Hippo (AD 354–430) was born in Thagaste, Numidia, in Northern Africa. He studied rhetoric in Carthage when he was 17. As an adult, Augustine abandoned the Christianity of his youth to pursue Manichaeism. Through his Manichaen connections, Augustine became professor of rhetoric at the imperial court of Milan. While in Milan, Augustine was heavily influenced by the bishop of Milan, Ambrose. Influenced by Ambrose and by the biography of St. Anthony, Augustine began exploring Christianity and eventually reconverted. He was baptized in 387 and returned to Africa. There he was ordained and became a well-known preacher and apologist for the Christian faith. He was eventually made bishop of Hippo, an office he held until his death in 430.

    Great primary resource for any clergy library; good to know where we've come from and what informs our thoughts today.

    Unfortunately the Latin is full of spelling errors, due presumably to poor OCR on the scans they used. I hope Logos decides to correct this, because as things are now, the Latin side is pretty much unusable..
