Overview
Third volume of the long-awaited translation of one of Augustine's classics and a great work in Christian literature. Newly translated by Maria Boulding, O.S.B., whose masterful translation of Augustine's Confessions in the same series has been praised as being "of a different level of excellence from practically anything else in the market." (Bishop Rowan Williams, Monmouth, England) As the psalms are a microcosm of the Old Testament, so the Expositions of the Psalms can be seen as a microcosm of Augustinian thought. They recapitulate and focus the experiences of Augustine's personal life, his theological reflections, and his pastoral concerns as Bishop of Hippo.

More About Saint Augustine of Hippo, John E. Rotelle & Maria Boulding


Saint Augustine of Hippo Augustine was born in AD 354. He lived a wild, self-destructive life as a young man in Italy and was the subject of many prayers by his worried mother, Monica. After a life-changing conversion, he lived on to become a tremendous influence on Christian thinking. He died in AD 430.

Aurelius Augustinus [more commonly “St. Augustine of Hippo,” often simply “Augustine”] (354–430 C.E.): rhetor, Christian Neoplatonist, North African Bishop, Doctor of the Roman Catholic Church. One of the decisive developments in the western philosophical tradition was the eventually widespread merging of the Greek philosophical tradition and the Judeo-Christian religious and scriptural traditions. Augustine is one of the main figures through and by whom this merging was accomplished. He is, as well, one of the towering figures of medieval philosophy whose authority and thought came to exert a pervasive and enduring influence well into the modern period (e.g. Descartes and especially Malebranche), and even up to the present day, especially among those sympathetic to the religious tradition which he helped to shape (e.g. Plantinga 1992; Adams 1999). But even for those who do not share this sympathy, there is much in Augustine's thought that is worthy of serious philosophical attention. Augustine is not only one of the major sources whereby classical philosophy in general and Neoplatonism in particular enter into the mainstream of early and subsequent medieval philosophy, but there are significant contributions of his own that emerge from his modification of that Greco-Roman inheritance, e.g., his subtle accounts of belief and authority, his account of knowledge and illumination, his emphasis upon the importance and centrality of the will, and his focus upon a new way of conceptualizing the phenomena of human history, just to cite a few of the more conspicuous examples.

Saint Augustine of Hippo was born in 354 and died in 430.

Reviews - What do customers think about Expositions of the Psalms 51-72 (Works of Saint Augustine)?

Augustine on the Psalms  Nov 23, 2008
To have inexpensive paperbacks of one of the great works of patristic scholarship and commentary is wonderful. Augustine's remarks on the psalms of David, even for the non-Christian, are moving and (granted the limits of biblical scholarship in his day) learned. The man could write. What he said in these volumes influenced generations of later readers, both clerical and lay, and the power of his prose makes it easy to see why. These books are a bargain. When I was young they were unavailable except in large libraries and I had to track them down at Columbia and Union Theological. Now they are on my own shelves. The tag I was asked to add says "Old Testament," but I'd prefer "Hebrew Bible."
