Product Description

Anyone who is familiar with the Loeb Classical Library knows that not only are these typically the best English translations available, they are often the only series to provide the original language along with the English. Here Augustine's Confessions are presented in both Latin and English making this text an indispensable and irreplaceable resource for study of the Confessions.Written between 397 and 401A.D., Augustine's Confessions is one of Christianity's most influential books. Autobiographical in nature, and yet resoundingly and deeply theological, this classic tells the story of Augustine's life of philosophical searching and sin prior to his conversion to Christianity. Along the way Augustine will discuss self-hood, God, conversion, and Creation along with prayers and meditations.

Author Bio

Augustinus (354–430 CE), son of a pagan, Patricius of Tagaste in North Africa, and his Christian wife Monica, while studying in Africa to become a rhetorician, plunged into a turmoil of philosophical and psychological doubts in search of truth, joining for a time the Manichaean society. He became a teacher of grammar at Tagaste, and lived much under the influence of his mother and his friend Alypius.

About 383 he went to Rome and soon after to Milan as a teacher of rhetoric, being now attracted by the philosophy of the Sceptics and of the Neo-Platonists. His studies of Paul's letters with Alypius and the preaching of Bishop Ambrose led in 386 to his rejection of all sensual habits and to his famous conversion from mixed beliefs to Christianity. He returned to Tagaste and there founded a religious community. In 395 or 396 he became Bishop of Hippo, and was henceforth engrossed with duties, writing and controversy. He died at Hippo during the successful siege by the Vandals.
