Title: On the Trinity

St. Augustine of Hippo (354-430) was one of the most prolific geniuses that humanity has ever known, and is admired not only for the number of his works, but also for the variety of subjects, which traverse the whole realm of thought. The form in which he casts his work exercises a very powerful attraction on the reader. The fifteen books De Trinitate, on which he worked for fifteen years, from 400 to 416, are the most elaborate and profound work of St. Augustine. The last books on the analogies which the mystery of the Trinity have with our soul are much discussed. The saintly author himself declares that they are only analogous and are far-fetched and very obscure.

Title: Augustine of Hippo: A Biography, Revised Edition with a New Epilogue

This biography was first published thirty years ago and has established itself long since as the standard account of Saint Augustine's life and teaching. The recent discovery of a considerable number of letters and sermons by Augustine has thrown fresh light on the first and last decades of his experience as a bishop. These circumstantial texts have led Peter Brown to reconsider some of his judgements on Augustine, both as the author of the Confessions and as the elderly bishop preaching and writing in the last years of Roman rule in North Africa. Professor Brown's reflections on the significance of these new documents are contained in two chapters of a substantial epilogue to his biography (the text of which is unaltered). He also reviews the changes in scholarship about Augustine since the 1960s. There is a personal as well as a scholarly fascination in the book-length epilogue and notes that Professor Brown has added to his portrait of the Bishop of Hippo.

Title: Augustine of Hippo: A Life

The life and works of Augustine of Hippo (354-430) have shaped the development of the Christian Church, sparking controversy and influencing the ideas of theologians through subsequent centuries. Augustine's journey from schoolboy and student to Bishop and champion of Western Christendom in a period of intense political upheaval, is recounted with clarity and warmth by the acclaimed church historian, the late Professor Henry Chadwick.

Chadwick infuses Augustine's thought processes with a fresh immediacy, enabling the reader to understand why a particular philosophical problem mattered to him or why an intellectual position was persuasive. Skilfully crafted, this engaging life is accessible yet nuanced, an ideal introduction to Augustine and an essential addition to existing biographies.

With a foreword by Peter Brown reflecting on Chadwick's distinctive approach to Augustine.
