About the Author

Professor Henry Chadwick (1920-2008) enjoyed international renown as one of the leading church historians of the twentieth century. He held senior appointments at both Oxford and Cambridge Universities, latterly as Emeritus Regius Professor of Divinity, Cambridge. Chadwick's scholarship was complemented by his active involvement in church life. Ordained a priest in the Church of England in 1944, he developed a deep commitment to church unity and took a leading role in the Anglican and Roman Catholic dialogues of the mid-1970s. Chadwick authored numerous books and articles throughout his career. At Oxford University Press he held series editorship of Oxford Early Christian Texts and Oxford Early Christian Studies, and co-edited the Oxford History of the Christian Church series with his brother, Professor Owen Chadwick. His acclaimed translation of Augustine's Confessions is available from Oxford World Classics.


`Augustine's intellectual development is recounted with clarity and warmth...Chadwick's deep scholarship is evident throughout this book.' Methodist Recorder `Thank goodness we had Chadwick, level-headed and drenched in the sources, to unravel the threads of Augustine's musings.' Jonathan Wright, Catholic Herald `Read Chadwick, then read him again. You will learn.' Jonathan Wright, Catholic Herald `Chadwick succeeds in a spectacular manner.' R A Marcus, The Tablet `Uncanny skill in catching...the odd revealing detail, moving about Augustine's vast textual output with magisterial ease.' R. A. Markus, The Tablet `His Augustine emerges from his pages as an altogether more human and more humane figure than we meet in many of his interpreters.' R A Markus, The Tablet
