Months ago I saw yet another volume of the Library of Christian Classics up on CCEL, namely Augustine's Confessions at http://www.ccel.org/ccel/augustine/confessions.  IMHO, this rich work is a classic that deserves multiple translations, and so in spite of two versions (ECF and the earlier Pussey) available for Logos, I created a PB of it.

For some reason the CCEL edition was separated from the Enchiridion which is there at http://www.ccel.org/ccel/augustine/enchiridion.  I have joined them together, like they were published.  I have also added page numbers and tagged the documents so they should work better with Logos.

In every link I had to the Enchiridion in my Logos Library, it was to the "paragraph" number, ignoring the chapter number, so I have tagged it this way.

In one footnote, the book had Hebrew text.  CCEL did not.  I have not re-inserted the Hebrew.  In addition, the Bibliography and Index were not at CCEL, and I did not feel inspired to key them in myself.

Anyway, both texts of St. Augustine are worth reading.  The Enchiridion is a brief summary of the views of Late Augustine, written for a friend, and the Confessions are a devotional classic.

More like four, I believe: Pusey, ECF, Harvard Classics, and now Loeb.

But thanks anyway.Smile

Peace, Ken!            I rejoice to thank you again for this and all the wonderful "sharings" with which you have enriched the lives of your brothers and sisters on these Logos Forums!       May our Gracious God bless you richly!      (Not for the good you have done which is quite considerable, but simply because He is Who He is!)   *smile*

            Thank you also for:  "sanus perfecte        est in spe, in re ... peccator - M. Luther, 1515"

 

Philippians 4:  4 Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, Rejoice. 5 Let your reasonableness be known to everyone. The Lord is at hand..........

With the recent release of Fathers of the Church, I have revisited this to add some more links in footnotes to other works of Augustine.  Personally, I do not have the new set, and so have reverse engineered these links, but have followed the standard book, chapter, paragraph format.

Ah, but I would take Albert Outlet's work over anyone else's any time.  Thanks so very much!
