Like the first Hackett edition of the Augustine's Confessions , the second edition features F.
J. Sheed's remarkable translation of this classic spiritual autobiography with an Introduction by noted historian of late antiquity Peter Brown.
New to this edition are a wealth of notes on literary, philosophical, biblical, historical, and liturgical topics by Michael P.
Foley, an Editor's Preface, a map, a timeline, paragraph numbers in the text, a glossary, and a thorough index.
The text itself has been completely reset, with textual and explanatory notes placed at the foot of the page for easy reference.
