Item description for Augustine's Confessions: Communicative Purpose and Audience (Supplements to Vigiliae Christianae, V. 71) by Annemare Kotze...

This book is about the communicative purpose and the audience of the "Confessions," It illuminates the degree to which the communicative purpose of the work is to convert its readers, i.e. a protreptic purpose, and the degree to which the target audience may be identified as Augustine's potential Manichaean readers. A brief survey of possible literary antecedents points to the existence of other works that consist of the same combination of an autobiographical section (a conversion story) with a polemical and exegetical section (an argument that aims to convince the reader of the merits of a specific point of view) that characterizes the "Confessions," The book provides a new perspective on the meaning and structure of Augustine's often misunderstood masterpiece.
