Saint Augustine's Confessions are a classic of Western Civilization which have influenced men since the very date they were written. More than a catalog of the great saint's former life, it is an exploration of philosophy, the nature of man, the nature of God, justice, forgiveness and divine love itself. An essential thing however, to someone truly looking to understand Augustine's thought, is to read the work in the original language.
Up to this point, only a pricey two volume Latin-English edition has been available, and a few other versions. Thus, we are pleased to provide all thirteen books in a full Latin edition, taken from Migne's Patrologia Latina, with the notes and headings maintained from that work. This is a fresh OCR, dutifully edited, not a facsimile edition. It contains no English, and no notes. We do plan to offer in a subsequent edition a study edition with notes and vocabulary by next year.
In the meantime, this is a simple and inexpensive way to encounter St. Augustine's thought in the original, without bidding up hundreds of dollars on ebay waiting for a 100 year old copy.
