Augustine : biblical exegete( Book )

11 editions published between 2001 and 2004 in English and held by 244 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book contains a group of essays by internationally recognized scholars on Augustine's hermeneutical theory and practice of biblical exegesis attempting to understand Augustine (1) against his own intellectual background, (2) within his own works, and (3) in relation to traditional and contemporary discussions of biblical hermeneutics and exegesis. In the discussion of Augustine's theological works and pastoral sermons, consideration is given both to the science of hermeneutics and the art of exegesis. Ancient rhetoric, ancient philosophy, and earlier Christian exegetes are studied as they relate to Augustine as is Augustine's own synthesis. Augustine: Biblical Exegete sheds light on the continuity between the exegesis of earlier ages and our own

The Life of Augustine of Hippo by Frederick Van Fleteren( )

3 editions published between 2012 and 2015 in English and Undetermined and held by 70 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The seventeenth century was the century of Saint Augustine. In 1695, Louis Sébastien, Le Nain de Tillemont, finished volume 13 of his Mémoires ecclésiastique, entitled La vie de saint Augustin. The volume consisted of approximately 1200 pages wherein Louis Sébastien gathered from the works of Augustine and elsewhere all extant passages relevant to the biography of Augustine of Hippo. Completed in 1695, the biography was published posthumously in 1700. The work lies in the tradition of Jansenism from Port-Royal and the Leuven. Though an ascetic recluse on the family estate for the last twenty years of his life, he was in touch with important French scholars and the ecclesiastical movements of his time. Louis' work is the first modern biography of Augustine and the most comprehensive of all Augustinian biographies, even today. Modern authors consult him and frequently adopt his theories without citation. His method exercises influence on contemporary Parisian scholarship on Augustine. This English translation has been divided into three volumes covering three time periods: part 1: birth to episcopal consecraton (354-396); part 2: the Donatist controversy (396-411); part 3: the Pelagian controversy (411-430)

4 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

«At a time when philosophers and theologians have ample opportunity to present their understandings of Augustine’s thought, no small benefit will come from spending time with the historical research found in the life of Augustine by Louis Sébastien, Le Nain de Tillemont, an eminent historian of the seventeenth century. He is known as an historian who was so thorough and accurate in his scholarship that he can still be consulted with profit. That is especially true of his ‘La vie de saint Augustin’ where historical detail is so essential for correct understanding.» (Allan D. Fitzgerald, O.S.A., Villanova University)
The Life of Augustine of Hippo : The Donatist Controversy (396 #x96; 411)- Part 2 - Translation, Introduction and Annotation by Frederick Van Fleteren by Frederick Van Fleteren( )

6 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

«The seventeenth-century historian, Louis Sébastien, Le Nain de Tillemont's sixteen volumes of Mémoires pour servir à l'histoire ecclésiastique constitute a monument in the historiography of Christianity. The thirteenth volume of Tillemont's work offers the first modern biography of St. Augustine. Frederick Van Fleteren's second volume of a planned three-volume English translation of this biography renders Tillemont's French text into a smooth, easily intelligible prose that draws the English reader into a fascinating account of the life of Augustine, one constructed from primary sources taken most often from manuscripts. Tillemont's biography is still consulted today by scholars and biographers of Augustine for its rich collection of sources and meticulous effort at historical accuracy. Van Fleteren's translation will become a classic among resource works on Augustine in the English-speaking world.» (Fr. Robert Dodaro, director of the Augustinian Patristic Institute at the Pontifical Lateran University)
