Meditations of Saint Augustine
Augustine, Saint, Bishop of Hippo
The “Meditations” of Saint Augustine were immensely popular during the middle ages and seem to have provided food for the prayer of many generations of Christians, and especially of many monks and nuns. The meditations presented in this book are not the work of Saint Augustine of Hippo but are truly inspired by his writings and thought. In the middle ages it was customary to copy or edit the works of great people and pen their name to the finished product. These meditations inspired by Saint Augustine were repeatedly copied and passed down from hand to hand throughout Europe down to the fifteenth century; they were sufficiently well known that soon after printing was invented they were published at Milan as early as 1475. The entire middle ages had a real veneration for the name and works of Saint Augustine. This is one of the reasons for providing present-day Christians with an English translation of this spiritual treasure for their meditation. Includes an introduction which gives the historical background for each of these meditations. In shrink wap.
