|Life of St. AugustineThis section of our publication is a collection of significant moments in the life of St. Augustine of Hippo (354-430), Christian theologian and the most illustrious of the Fathers of the western Church as well as one of the most eminent doctors of Christianity. |
Works of St. Augustine We have at our disposal almost the entire collection of Augustine’s literary production. It amounts to 23 volumes of the journal, AUGUSTINUS and adds up to approximately 11062 pages. The list in which the titles of his works will eventually be included will also provide the appropriate volume of the work as it appears in the BAC (Biblioteca Autores Cristianos). Both the Latin and Spanish texts are available in these editions. The actual dating of the original works is related to that which Augustine himself states in his Retratationes. The actual chronology of his works, however, does present some problems, some of which have not been resolved even in at present and other dates are still only probable.
Thoughts of St. Augustine Under this title, we gather some sayings, generally brief, of Augustine. Each day any given phrase can invite one to reflect, to know the author more intimately as well as to appreciate the outstanding place which he occupies in the religious and academic history of the Western world.
