Details

Translated by Maria Boulding, OSB, Edited by David Meconi, SJ. One of the greatest works of all time and essential reading to anyone studying theology or philosophy, it is also the first Western autobiography ever written. The Confessions combines personal experience with a profound study of the Scriptures in an effort to reconcile the reality of evil with the goodness of God and his creation. Writing in the fourth century St Augustine gave the world not only its most complete account of a man living in the late Roman empire, but a scriptural classic that for centuries has helped countless souls heed the mysterious call of Christ.
