St. Augustine's Confessions

Pub. Date:
In St. Augustine's Confessions, Professors William R. Cook and Ronald B. Herzman lead a chapter-by-chapter-or, in Augustine's terms, "book-by-book"-analysis of one of history's most significant literary works. Written in the 4th century C.E., the Confessions is an opportunity to explore, in one book, questions that have been addressed in many books-by the likes of Plato, Cicero, Freud, and Einstein-for more than a millennium. The Confessions has had a staggering influence on Western civilization. It provided the framework through which the Judeo-Christian world accepted the thinking of Plato and other classical pagan philosophers. It served as the blueprint for Dante's Divine Comedy, and inspired Martin Luther. This course is designed to enable you to understand the Confessions as Augustine intended. Your professors cover such necessary background information as Roman history and Christian controversies during Augustine's time, and look at such other works by Augustine as City of God and Teaching Christianity. An added benefit of the course is that it covers all 13 books of the Confessions: the nine in which Augustine narrates the story of his life leading to his Christian conversion, and the four in which he meditates on time, memory, and scripture interpretation. Due to time constraints, most college-level courses cover only the first nine.
