Description

This study provides an interpretation of Augustine's theological and exegetical development over the course of his career. On a general level, it demonstrates the impact of rhetorical culture on early Christian approaches to the Bible. It also demonstrates how Augustine's interpretation of Paul was shaped by a "persuasive" rhetorical milieu. Finally, it shows the history of a critical text (Roman's 7:24-25a) that Augustine employs from first to final writings.

Contents

Augustine and Paul - the history of a relationship; the cry of conversion (386-401 CE); the cry of our captivity (402-417 CE); "still in the body of his death" (418-430 CE); conclusion - a Pauline Augustine, an Augustine Paul.
