Book #7: The Confessions

The Confessions

by Augustine of Hippo

Written by one of the most important figures of the post-Nicene Christian era, The Confessions is the spiritual autobiography of Saint Augustine of Hippo. Throughout the book’s thirteen chapters, Augustine documents his transition from sinner to saved. Along the way, he introduces the ideas and people that influenced his transformation, including his mother Monica.

For the project, I will use an electronic copy of the book as translated by Edward Bouverie Pusey. He published the text sometime in the nineteenth century, although I’m not sure if it was before or after he gave religious instruction to a young Charles Dodgson, a.k.a., Lewis Carroll. Using my standard font size, The Confessions is 242 pages long.
