Characters Confessiones Review â Confessiones 108 Augustine of Hippo ã 8 Free read Dents who are new to Augustine alerts readers to the verbal echoes and allusions of Augustine's brilliant and varied Latin and explains his theological and philosophical uestioning of what God is and what it is to be human The edition is intended for use by students and scholars of Latin literature theology and Church histo It was slow it was dense and it was militantly Christian So why is that The Confessions is such an unavoidably fascinating work Augustine appears here as a fully realized person with all the good and the bad that that implies it s as if the book was a conversation with God and a fly on the wall was taking dictation Since God obviously would have known Augustine s transgressions before they even occurred Augustine thus has nothing to hide in this personal narrative or at least makes it appear that way The prose of this translation must be incredibly different from its Latin source but it s obvious that Augustine has a force of personality that appears through his work that few writer have matched in the centuries that have followed this original Western autobiography The power and beauty of his writing was no doubt aided by his devotion not only to The Bible but to Cicero Plato and especially Virgil It s also an incomparably fascinating window into the culture of the time the Manicheans Astrologers Christians and Pagans are all interesting studies through the eyes of this saint His contributions to philosophy in this text cannot be ignored even today Bertrand Russell not exactly a churchgoer admired his work on time and it s still an enlightening experience to read these thoughts And of course the story of spiritual awakening is an inspiring and beautiful one a story that is not altogether dissimilar to that of the Buddha centuries before Augustine Although especially at the start it can be slow and cold reading The Confessions than justifies its position as one of the most important books ever written
