The Confessions of Saint Augustine (Illustrated)
Autch Press proudly presents this version of The Confessions of Saint Agustine (eg Confessions). It is the name of an autobiographical work, consisting of 13 books, by St.Augustine of Hippo, written between AD 397 and AD 398.
The work outlines Augustine's sinful youth and his conversion to Christianity. It is widely seen as the first Western autobiography ever written, and was an influential model for Christian writers throughout the following 1000 years of the Middle Ages.
It is not a complete autobiography, as it was written in his early 40s, and he lived long afterwards, producing another important work (City of God); it does, nonetheless, provide an unbroken record of his development of thought and is the most complete record of any single person from the 4th and 5th centuries. It is a significant theological work. In the work St. Augustine writes about how much he regrets having led a sinful and immoral life. He discusses his regrets for following the Manichaean religion and believing in astrology.
