The Routledge Guidebook to Augustine's Confessions

release date: Jun 17, 2016
The Routledge Guidebook to Augustine's Confessions
Augustine’s Confessions is one of the most significant works of Western culture. Cast as a long, impassioned conversation with God, it is intertwined with passages of life-narrative and with key theological and philosophical insights. It is enduringly popular, and justly so. The Routledge Guidebook to Augustine’s Confessions is an engaging introduction to this spiritually creative and intellectually original work. This guidebook is organized by themes: the importance of language creation and the sensible world memory, time and the self the afterlife of the Confessions. Written for readers approaching the Confessions for the first time, this guidebook addresses the literary, philosophical, historical and theological complexities of the work in a clear and accessible way. Excerpts in both Latin and English from this seminal work are included throughout the book to provide a close examination of both the autobiographical and theoretical content within the Confessions.

The Irrational Augustine

Catherine Conybeare takes the notion of St Augustine as rigid and dogmatic Father of the Church and turns it on its head. She reads his early works to discover the anti-dogmatic Augustine, who valued changeability and human interconnectedness and deplored social exclusion.

Paulinus Noster
The history of Umbria in the first millennium B.C. is examined in this volume, looking at the reasons behind the successful Roman conquest of this area and the impact of Roman domination on the plurality of cultures, and identities in the region.
