    Mine were sorely disappointed, which I'll address momentarily. Augustine of Hippo stands as a witness to every age that in God alone do we find the answer to our most profound longings. There are brilliant philosophical musings about Platonism and the nature of God, and touching portraits of Augustine's beloved mother, of St. That truth had to embrace what was spiritual, moral, philosophical and religious in his life.

    If you look at windows from outside, they are merely sold grey. Augustine's vision of Catholicism as an institution that could thrive despite the imperfections of believers later became a definitive statement about the role and purpose of the church. But in Christ is also referred to as the Word of God, that by which God made all of creation.

    The meeting pushes Augustine further from Manichee beliefs. Alypius joins him in conversion and in baptism. He looks back with incredulity at his long association with the Manichean sect, and at how they duped him with their erroneous teaching about God, the origin of evil, and the creation of the world. Besides the Confessions writtenAugustine's other great classic work is De civitate Dei or The City of God writtena monumental exploration of the end of pagan civilization and the role of Christianity in history. As such, he represents God's infinite mercy, his promise to humanity that God is within reach.

Saint Augustine on personality. book

Although he never completed this task, his work and that of his friend and biographer, Possidius, left future readers with a well-documented list of Augustine's works.

Paul in 2 Timothy As such, he represents God's infinite mercy, his promise to humanity that God is within reach. His creation, however, experiences time which Augustine sees as a painful quality.

Elijah or Elias prophet of the Old Testament. There are certainly some original things here that I may follow up on in the future, but as a biography, the book lacks any sense of narrative and focuses heavily on Augustine's use of late Greek and Roman philosophy.

Furthermore, they refused to recognize any priests or bishops except their own, believing that the Catholic bishops had been ordained by traitors.

Christ is also referred to as the Word of God, that by which God made all of creation. All of these ideas, heresies and religions were themselves in competition in the homeland of Augustine of Hippo. O'Donnell and other scholars have noted that the Trinity also serves as a structural element for the last three books of the Confessions: Book 11, with its contrasts between human time and God's eternity, corresponds to the "being" of God; Book 12, with its intense focus on the textual word of God as contrasted to the eternal Word who is Christ, corresponds to the "knowledge" of God; and Book 13, with its focus on the activity and faith journey the Church as sustained by the Holy Spirit, corresponds to the "will" of God.

Links to the sources used to create this list are at the end of the post. Best known of his written works are his Confessions, his books on the Trinity, and perhaps his supreme masterpiece, the City of God.

Genesis spurs the discussion of time and eternity in Book XI, as well as providing the material for a consideration of "the creation" in Book XII. In Book 13, Augustine makes clear the identification between himself, humanity, and the entire creation. After growing up and attending primary school in Thagaste, Augustine left the city for Carthage for further studies.

He was sent to the nearby town of Madaura for further studies, but a lack of money forced him back home to Thagaste for a year, while his father tried to save more money for tuition. The study of these forms part of iconography in art history. But Augustine's talents continued to attract attention.

Following these links will help you quickly find a wider range of options if the listed books do not fit what you are looking for. To become a person made in "God's image" means to accept Christ fully — to "put on Christ," as Augustine read under the pear tree, and thereby become a new person, leaving behind the old Adam.Enjoy the best Saint Augustine Quotes at BrainyQuote.

Christianity has used symbolism from its very beginnings. Each saint has a story and a reason why they led an exemplary life. Symbols have been used to tell these stories throughout the history of the Church.

A number of Christian saints are traditionally represented by a symbol or iconic motif associated with their life, termed an attribute or emblem, in order to identify them.

St. Augustine is a fascinating figure! On the occasion of his memorial day, here are 10 things to know and share. This is the inaugural lecture of the Saint Augustine Lecture Series on Saint Augustine and the Augustinian Tradition sponsored by Villanova University.

St Augustine of Hippo

The lecturer is a distinguished Plotinian and Augustinian scholar. His thesis is that the true concept of the person and personality originates in western thought with St. Augustine as he contemplates the doctrine of the Trinity. In his own day the dominant personality of the Western Church, Augustine of Hippo today stands as perhaps the greatest thinker of Christian antiquity, and his Confessions is one of the great works of Western literature.

In this intensely personal narrative, Augustine relates his rare ascent from a humble Algerian farm to the edge of the corridors of power at the imperial court in Milan, his /5(5).

Saint Augustine, The Soliloquies of the vital personality whose works live because of him; the man to whom nothing human is alien, whose experience circumscribes and transcends that of the common lot; the prodigious individual rather than the individual prodigy, the master rather than the marvel.
