In this intensely personal narrative, Augustine tells the story of his sinful youth and his conversion to Christianity. He describes his acsent from a humble farm in North Africa to a prestigious post in the Roman Imperial capital of Milan, his struggle against his own overpowering sexuality, his renunciation of secular ambition and marriage, and the recovery of the faith his mother had taught him during his earliest years.
Grounded in her command of Latin as it was written and spoken in the ancient world, Sarah Ruden's fresh, dynamic translation of Confessions brings us closer to Augustine's intent than any other previous version.
