Editorial Reviews

Review


"Chadwick's translation is superb." -Church History


"If the Latin is a "work of high art", so is this translation."-The Times


"A masterpiece beyond classification."-Church Times


"...Chadwick has the gift for being able to pinpoint significant, as well as sometimes unfamiliar aspects of the life of the church: and in this respect his footnotes in the present volume do not disappoint us."-Expository Times


"Excellent translation ... this new translation is the most readable version in modern English"-Vernon J. Bourke, Saint Louis University


"It is a great pleasure to welcome a translation of the Confessions from one who is both a scholar and a lover of Augustine. There is a concise but very informative introduction, and a bibliography which will be extremely helpfull to the students who wants to read some of the work of Augustine's contemporaries in extenso. The translation itself is clear and accessible ... of available English version, this offers the most comprehensive identification of scriptural allusions in the text."-Rowan Williams, Journal of Theological Studies
