The Confessions of Saint Augustine


Confessions is the name of an autobiographical work, consisting of 13 books, by Saint Augustine of Hippo, written in Latin between 397 and 400 AD. The work outlines Saint Augustine’s sinful youth and his conversion to Christianity. It is widely seen as the first Western autobiography ever written, and Professor Henry Chadwick wrote that Confessions will “always rank among the great masterpieces of Western literature”. It provides an unbroken record of his development of thought into his early 40s and is the most complete record of any single person from the fourth and fifth centuries. It is a significant theological work, featuring spiritual meditations and insights.

A must-listen classic for both Western and religious history!
