The Trinity by Augustine( Book )

10 editions published between 1990 and 2015 in English and held by 301 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Augustine knows by faith that God is a trinity, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, and he is seeking as far as possible to understand what he believes. In the first seven books Augustine begins by searching the scriptures of the Old and New Testaments for clues to understanding and then argues in the language of philosophy and logic to defend the orthodox statement of the doctrine against the Arians. In the last eight books Augustine seeks to understand the mystery of the divine Trinity by observing an analogous trinity in the image of God, which is the human mind; and in so doing, he also suggests a program for the serious Christian of spiritual self-discovery and renewal. This second edition is newly produced, now featuring convenient footnotes rather than the previously used endnotes

"Written as a favor for a friend, this 'little work' of Saint Augustine is a wonderful explanation of the Christian faith, a true catechism. From it other catechisms throughout the history of the Church have sprung up, including the recent Catechism of the Catholic Church, which quotes Augustine extensively."--Back Cover

Soliloquies : Augustine's inner dialogue by Augustine( Book )

3 editions published between 2000 and 2008 in English and held by 101 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"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
Friar, reformer, and Renaissance scholar : life and work of Giles of Viterbo, 1469-1532 by F. X Martin( Book )

4 editions published in 1992 in English and Italian and held by 94 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

[Flaptekst] In the past thirty years Giles of Viterbo has become a familiar name to scholars from a variety of disciplines researching the culture of Rome and the Church during the High Renaissance. Because of the attention directed to Giles, we are now much better informed about Renaissance Rome during the early years of the Cinquecento than we have ever been. This means that our understanding of the role Giles played has been redimensioned, and scholars see more clearly that he and the rich cultural diversity he embodied represent in fact only a small portion of the forces at work in Rome during that crucial period of Western history. Giles remains a special source for understanding certain aspects of the Renaissance. The reasons are several. He played many roles - orator at the papal court, reforming prior general of the Augustinians, synthesizer - almost syncretizer - of certain strains of Renaissance culture. He was in significant ways a child of the Renaissance, but medieval influences on him sometimes seem stronger. He knew the mainstream of Ficinian Neoplatonism and Paduan Aristotelianism, but also ardently pursued esoterica. A reformer, he was worlds apart from his most famous subject in the Augustinian Order, Martin Luther. Perhaps most important of all, he left behind a large corpus, in which we find a curious mix ranging from practical directives as superior general of an important religious order to the most abstruse speculation on theological, historical, and other subjects. Almost every literary genre is represented - correspondence, orations and sermons, translation, poetry, official registers, commentaries, and treatises. Whence did current interest in him arise? As the following pages indicate, Giles was not unnoticed before the middle of the twentieth century. In the 1950s scholars like Eugenio Massa and François Secret began to suggest that there was more to Giles than we had heretofore imagined. At about the same time Francis X. Martin was independently preparing at Cambridge University his doctoral dissertation. Shortly thereafter he began to share some of the results of his research in several articles. A turning-point had been reached. From that time forward it was to Father Martin, by now Professor of Medieval History at University College, Dublin, that scholars from around the world first turned for guidance on the until then elusive Giles. Father Martin continued to publish on the subject. Principally through those publications the contours of Giles's career and the location and richness of the sources pertaining to him began to emerge. What we have been missing up to this point, however, has been Frank Martin's Cambridge dissertation, a fundamental instrument for putting the pieces together. The present volume fills that lacuna
Prayers from the confessions by Augustine( Book )

5 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 58 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Confessions of Saint Augustine is considered the all time number one Christian classic. Augustine undertook his greatest piece of writing with the conviction that God wanted him to make this confession. The Confessions are, in fact, an extended poetic, passionate, intimate prayer. Augustine was probably forty-three when he began this endeavor. He had been a baptized Catholic for ten years, a priest for six, and a bishop for only two. His pre-baptismal life raised questions in the community. Was his conversion genuine? The first hearers were captivated, as many millions have been over the following sixteen centuries. His experience of God speaks to us across time with little need of transpositions. This new translation masterfully captures his experience. This second edition included a new annotated bibliography by William Harmless, S.J
