John Cassian, the conferences by John Cassian( Book )

4 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 451 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"John Cassian: The Conferences is the first complete English translation of the twenty-four dialogues between Cassian and the desert fathers of Egypt. A native of Dacia, Cassian (c. 360-430) joined a monastery in Bethlehem when he was in his early adult years. From Palestine, Cassian and Germanus, a companion, traveled several times to Egypt where they learned about the monastic tradition from the great desert masters or abbas. Cassian's writings here record twenty-four dialogues with fifteen abbas." "The Conferences have long been a key work in monastic circles and among scholars of spirituality. Ramsey's helpful introductions and annotations make them accessible to a new and broader readership. Careful attention to references, notes and appendices demonstrate the outstanding research and writing which helped produce this monumental volume."--Jacket
John Cassian, the institutes by John Cassian( Book )

11 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 443 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Institutes is the first written work of John Cassian, a man who had an immense influence on Western monasticism and, by extension, on Western civilization. A native of Dacia, Cassian (c. 360-430) joined a monastery in Bethlehem in his early adult years. From Palestine, Cassian and his traveling companion, Germanus, visited Egypt several times." "Although Cassian eventually settled in Marseilles, his experience of Egyptian monasticism left an indelible impression on his life. It is the wisdom he learned there that he shares in The Institutes as well as in his later "companion piece," The Conferences." "The Institutes consists of two sections. In the first, Cassian deals with the institutes and rules of Egyptian monasteries, including monastic garb and forms of prayer. The balance of the work treats the eight principal vices (gluttony, fornication, avarice, anger, sadness, acedia, vainglory, and pride) and discusses strategies for countering their effects."--Jacket

The city of God by Augustine( Book )

5 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 184 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Saint Augustine is often regardarded as the most influential Christian thinker after Saint Paul, and City of God is his materpiece, a cast synthesis of religious and secular knowledge. It began as a reply to the charge that Christian otherworldiness was causing the decline of the Roman Empire. Augustine produced a wealth of evidence to prove that paganism bore within itself the seeds of its own destruction. Then he proceeded to his larger theme, a cosmic interpretation of in terms of the struggle between good and evilL the City of God in conflict with the Earthly City or the City of the Devil. This, the first serious attempt at a philosophy of history, was to have incalculable influence in forming the Western mind on the relations of church and state, and on the Christianʹs place in the temporal order. -- Description from http://www.amazon.co.uk/ (Dec. 10, 2012)

Answer to Faustus, a Manichean = Contra Faustum Manichaeum by Augustine( Book )

6 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 148 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Answer to Faustus, a Manichean is the most extensive attack on the Manichean religion that the early Church produced. Since Augustine himself had been associated with Manicheanism for nearly a decade before his conversion, his writing displays an insiders knowledge of Manichean teaching. Written probably at the very end of the fourth century, the Answer responds to a certain Faustus, a Manichean bishop, who objects to the Old Testament and questions how Christians can claim it for themselves. Augustine cites Faustus arguments at length, thus giving the reader a useful insight into the Manichean mentality. The Answer is valuable for its reasoned and still-relevant defense of Hebrew Scripture and of its patriarchs and prophets, and also for the opportunity that it gives Augustine to draw connections between the Old and the New Testaments and to show how, in Christian eyes, the latter is the fulfillment of the former."--Publisher's website

"Soliloquies is a work from Augustine's early life, shortly after his conversion, in which are visible all the seeds contained in his future writings. Here we see Augustine as a philosopher, a thinker, and a budding theologian. We also see him as a person preparing for baptism, reaching for the God of truth for whom he had searched passionately. Soliloquies is his personal prayer to his God of love and mercy."--BOOK COVER
Trilogy on faith and happiness by Augustine( Book )

4 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 46 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Augustine of Hippo, one of the most prolific writers of late antiquity, known primarily for four masterpieces: The Confessions, Teaching Christianity, The City of God, and The Trinity, composed a vast body of work comprised of more than five million words. He composed his earliest works in the form of dialogues shortly before his baptism in 387. The next decade of his life, a relatively unproductive transitional period, was followed by an explosion that averaged, in modern terms, a 300-page book per year. This early trilogy, The Happy Life, The Advantage of Believing, and Faith in the Unseen, demonstrates Augustine?s fundamental concern to link Christian faith with the human quest for happiness. These three essential works, which illustrate his dictum that faith is necessary for understanding, constitute a magnificent introduction to Augustinian spirituality. Trilogy on Faith and Happiness reveals Augustine?s insight into fundamental existential questions and his conviction that human fulfillment can be found only in the incarnation of Jesus, the Word and Wisdom of God. It will prove especially useful for spiritual reading and for students of Christian spirituality
