The Life of Augustine of Hippo
“Sébastien, Le Nain de Tillement (1637–1698) is one of the most interesting figures within the history of Jansenism. During his lifetime, he was constantly in contact with important people belonging to the movement of Port-Royal. He was in contact with P. Nicole, M. de Sacy, Th. du Fossé, and ‘le grand’ A. Arnauld. Among the many valuable historical works he published, a central place is given to his Mémoires pour servir à l’histoire ecclésiastique, an impressive series of particular studies, still a necessary reference work for contemporary historians. Among the many valuable studies, his life of Augustine is undoubtedly one of the most important. In this work, the author does not hide his Jansenist feelings, but at the same time shows that he is a first-class historian, writing in a simple but clear style, revealing a thorough knowledge of Augustine and his thought. Finally, this classic on the life of Augustine has received an English translation. One sincerely hopes that through this translation the work of a fascinating historian can become subject of research in the Anglo-Saxon world.”
