Augustine of Hippo

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

Among the most influential Church Fathers in the West, Augustine of Hippo is quite particular. The Revisions is a collection of his nervous comments and a list of the opening words of his books. Concerning Augustine's sermons, scholars have been confronted with the extreme difficulty of their dating. The establishment of Augustine's library must have occurred in the earlier years, when the need to reply to requests from colleagues, friends, and acquaintances who would like to read his books and treatises increased. Augustine's works were transmitted through the various collections of excerpts (florilegia). The situation of Augustine's reception changed dramatically in the late medieval and early modern period. It is needless to say that Augustine's influence on Luther and Calvin was considerable. Augustine was viewed by Japanese intellectuals as someone who had a keen spiritual concern for the individual self and for true peace.
