Item description for Augustine: The Confessions (Bristol Phoenix Press - Greece and Rome Live) by Gillian Clark & Sarah Clark...

The Confessions, written at the close of the 4th century CE, is a highly significant text in the history of European culture. Augustine explains just how and why he came to abandon a successful career and the personal enjoyments of a largely secular existence to follow a life of prayer and study, leading to a true comprehension of God and the Bible. The avowed approach of this introductory book is to `historicise' - to set Augustine's own experiences of religion, philosophy and Christian faith against the long-standing political, cultural and religious traditions of the classical world. Late Antiquity saw the transformation of the classical heritage and its transmission by Christian authors. Augustine's ideas about how texts may be presented and read, how people respond to written and spoken language, find resonance in recent critical theory. The world in which Augustine lived, the structure, style and purpose of the Confessions, and the problems of rhetoric and truth posed by the author's personal search for himself are all scrutinised in this account. The volume also offers a useful guide to further reading.
