Augustine : a new biography by James Joseph O'Donnell( Book )

35 editions published between 1985 and 2014 in English and Italian and held by 2,264 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Augustine, sinner and saint, the theologian who served as bishop of Hippo from 396 C.E. until his death in 430 C.E., is widely regarded as one of the most influential thinkers in the western world. During his post-Confessions years he became prominent as a churchman, politician, and writer, and O'Donnell looks back at the events in the Confessions from this period in Augustine's life. Much of Augustine's writing consists of sermons and letters about the events of his time: prosperous men converting to Christianity to get ahead, priests covering up sexual and financial peccadilloes, generals playing coldly calculated games of Roman geopolitics--these are the figures who stand out in Augustine's world and who populate O'Donnell's portrait, set against a background of the battle over the future of Christianity.--From publisher description

The consolation of philosophy by Boethius( Book )

13 editions published between 1984 and 1990 in Latin and English and held by 111 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Written in the 6th century, The Consolation of Philosophy is the best-known--and most profound--work of the Christian theologian and philosopher St. Boethius. He composed this great work while he was unjustly imprisoned, directly before his unlawful execution. Consequently, The Consolation--which takes the form of a dialogue between Boethius and 'Lady Philosophy'--discusses a variety of important and weighty issues including ethics, the nature of God, God's relationship to the world, the problem of evil, and the true nature of happiness. In particular, an often-emphasized and key theme throughout the book is the importance of both loving God and developing virtue. Because it is written in dialogue form, the literary qualities of the book are somewhat 'light, ' which contrasts with the occasionally weighty topics it discusses. The Consolation of Philosophy was enormously influential on medieval and renaissance Christianity--statesmen, poets, historians, philosophers, and theologians all read and studied it extensively. Moreover, it remains even today an important and instructive book. Both compelling and illuminating, The Consolation of Philosophy is profitable for all readers and comes highly recommended. -- Description from http://www.ccel.org/ccel/boethius/consolation.html (April 18, 2012)

Confessions by Augustine( Book )

2 editions published between 1992 and 2012 in Latin and held by 47 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Les avatars du mot : du papyrus au cyberespace by James Joseph O'Donnell( Book )

2 editions published between 2004 and 2006 in French and held by 30 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Un essai au ton très libre dans lequel l'auteur, professeur d'études classiques aux États-Unis, aborde l'évolution de l'écriture comme moyen de communication érudite, depuis son invention jusqu'à l'avènement du cyberespace en passant par l'apparition du codex et de l'imprimerie. Les derniers chapitres s'intéressent plus spécifiquement aux révolutions dans le domaine de l'apprentissage et de l'enseignement supérieur que ces changements ont entraînées. Le propos de l'auteur est moins de retracer l'histoire de ces événements que d'en souligner la portée et la signification. Un livre à l'écriture fragmentaire, qui mêle avec brio érudition, anecdotes et souvenirs personnels. Un bémol: la traduction est d'une qualité assez inégale. [SDM]
