This is the first German translation of ›Über die Gottesschau‹ (Of the Beatific Vision) by St. Augustine Augustinus, a translation which the editor Erich Naab presents along with the Latin text, annotates in the detailed introduction and puts into its historical context. The classification in the historical context is also the function of the ›Erinnerungsschreiben‹ (A Letter of Instructions) to Fortunatianus, the text, translation and introduction of which are provided subsequently. The letter ›Über die Gegenwart Gottes‹ (On the Presence of God) deals with a question which is based closely upon the study of the first text, which results in an in-depth view of the Augustine discussion. Since these texts are concealed in the extensive body of Augustine’s letters, this volume is a reader-friendly student edition which sheds light on these issues. There is also an index of biblical passages and persons.

»Eine gediegene und inhaltsreiche Arbeit, worin Augustinus einmal mehr als lebensnaher Weisheitslehrer aufscheint, der auch heute noch Geltung hat.«

»The introductory material is a substantial aid to making the difficult material accessible, with explanations of the background and composition, summaries of the thought, references to its significance for other Augustinian works, and accounts of the medieval reception.«
