奥古斯丁(Aurelius Augustinus)

奥古斯丁(Aurelius Augustinus,354年11月13日-430年8月28日),北非迦太基希波主教,四、五世纪西方教父基督教思想史上最重要的、对后世影响最深远的神学家,被大公教会称为“恩典博士”。现代德国教义史家哈纳克曾指出,基督教教义到奥古斯丁已经大致完备,其后的神学家不过是为他的思想做脚注而已。他的神学观点集早期基督教思想之大成,历经中世纪的沉潜发展,到宗教改革运动时成为神学争论的焦点,这也奠定了他作为教义史之论述轴心的地位。

  4. The Harmony of the Gospels

    Augustine wrote this book as an argument against those who claimed that alleged discrepancies between Matthew, Mark, Luke and John (often called the “synoptic problem”) invalidated their accounts. He took for granted that the order of the gospels in the New Testament was the order in which they were composed and was the first to recognize a direct literary dependence of one synoptic gospel on another. He maintained that the seeming differences, the additions and omissions were meant to reflect the different themes stressed by each author. Augustine's view, which became the prevailing opinion in western Christian tradition, is that: * Matthew wrote the basic story of Jesus' life; * Mark condensed Matthew; * Luke edited Matthew and Mark, omitting passages they covered; * John wrote to fill in what the others omitted.

  5. The Enchiridion on Faith, Hope and Love

    The Enchiridion was written by Augustine of Hippo in 420 shortly after the death of St. Jerome in response to a request by an otherwise unknown Roman named Laurentius as a model for Christian instruction. This comprehensive exposition of the basic teachings of Christianity is organized according to the three graces necessary for the Christian worship of God: Faith, Hope and Love. Under Faith, Augustine explains the use of the Apostles' Creed, in teaching Christian doctrine and in refuting heresies. Under Hope, he briefly explains the Lord's Prayer as a model of Christian prayer. The final part is a discourse on Christian love. Learn More
  6. Augustine and His World

    Out of stock

    Augustine is one of the giants of the Christian church. From his birth in North Africa and his days as a relatively permissive young man, through his midlife conversion to Christianity and career as bishop of Hippo, Augustine's story has intrigued and inspired every generation for more than 1,600 years. It is as a thinker, teacher, writer and debater that Augustine has exerted the most influence. His greatness lay in his ability to relate the philosophies of Ancient Greece and Rome to the precepts of the Christian faith. Augustine also saved the church itself from disintegrating into rival factions by forging sound doctrine in the fires of controversy. In Augustine and His World Andrew Knowles and Pachomios Penkett tell the story of Augustine's life. They help readers to understand the world he came from and the enormous contribution he made to the church both of his day and of the future. Learn More
  7. Confessions of Saint Augustine

    In his own day the dominant personality of the Western Church, Augustine of Hippo (354-430) today stands as perhaps the greatest thinker of Christian antiquity, and his Confessions is one of the great works of Western literature. In this intensely personal narrative, Augustine relates his rare ascent from a humble Algerian farm to the edge of the corridors of power at the imperial court in Milan, his struggle against the domination of his sexual nature, his renunciation of secular ambition and marriage, and the recovery of the faith his mother Monica had taught him during his childhood.

  8. Moral Treatises

    The Council of Nicaea in 325 AD marked the beginning of a new era in Christianity. For the first time, doctrines were organized into a single creed. The Nicene and Post-Nicene Fathers did most of their writing during and after this important event in Church history. Unlike the previous era of Christian writing, the Nicene and Post-Nicene era is dominated by a few very important and prolific writers. Augustine was one of the most important of these writers. This work, Moral Treatises, contains essays on ethical considerations such as marriage, virginity, widowhood, lying, patience and proper care for the dead. Learn More

  10. St. Augustine: Early Church Father

    Rachael Phillips is the author of four biographies in the Heroes of the Faith series, including St. Augustine: Early Church Father. Here she tells the story of one of the greatest of the early Christian thinkers, Augustine (354-430), who left a body of writing and philosophy that still influences Christians today. Reared by a godly mother, Augustine turned his back on her teachings during this years of schooling. Contemporary philosophies, however, could not help him during a time of spiritual crisis, and Augustine returned to his roots, embracing Christianity. Augustine's writings, including the autobiographical Confessions, and his monumental theology The City of God, are still read and studied more than fifteen hundred years after his death. Learn More
