Hi there, 

I have a collection "church fathers" which I want to search "original sin," but I want to exclude Augustine from the search. 

what is the search string for this?

thank-you-

Manny

You can't exclude authors when actually executing the search but you can from the collection you use.

I don't know how you have defined your collection but if you create a new one and include the string "-author:augustine" that should give you what you want. Then use this new collection for the search

Does this help?
