Saint Augustin - Ceriziers - Les Soliloques et Méditations de St Augustin - 1662

Very rare edition of Saint Augustine, Christian philosopher and theologian of Late Antiquity, bishop of Hippo, and Latin writer -

He is one of the four Fathers of the Latin Church and one of the 33 Doctors of the Church -

After Saint Paul, he is considered the most important figure in the establishment and development of Western Christianity. He was also the most read thinker in the Middle Ages -

His position on free will versus predestination and fatalism was supported and still is supported by the Catholic Church, as his teachings on free will are consistent with modern doctrine.

The Meditations of Saint Augustine is a collection of early church prayers and devotions as well as teachings for priests and monks -
