A very rare edition by Saint Augustine, a Christian philosopher and theologian of late antiquity, bishop of Hippo, and writer in Latin.
He was 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 influential figure in the establishment and development of Western Christianity. He was also the most widely read thinker during the Middle Ages.
An autobiographical masterpiece by Augustine of Hippo in which he recounts his quest for God.
It therefore has a double purpose: to confess his sins and faults directly to God (confession in the Christian sense) but also to preach the glory of God.
