Description
 
Written between 397 and 400 A.D., "The Confessions of Saint Augustine" is thought to be the first autobiography in Western civilization and is considered by many to be one of the most important religious works of all time. While not a complete account of Augustines life, for Augustine wrote "Confessions" in his early forties and would live well into his seventies, it is one of the most complete first-hand accounts of anyones life from the fourth or fifth century, in which the author outlines the sins of his youth and conversion to Christianity. "The Confessions" tells of its authors upbringing in Algeria, his place at the Imperial court of Milan, his struggle to overcome his sexual desires, and the ultimate dedication of his life to Christ and Christian ways. "The Confessions" are not simply a recount of the authors life but a true exploration of what it is to be Christian and the struggles that one must overcome in order to find Christ and live a more pious life. A pioneering work of autobiography, "The Confessions" remains one of the most important works of spiritual devotion ever written. This edition is printed on premium acid-free paper, follows the translation of Edward Bouverie Pusey, and includes an introduction by Arthur Symons.
