Fathers of the Church

Letter XXIV

Description

This letter was omitted from the printed edition because it is neither from nor to Augustine. It was written by his friend Alypius to St. Paulinus of Nola, and is included in Augustine’s correspondence because it refers to his works against the Manichaeans and is connected with letter XXV, from Paulinus to Augustine.

Provenance

The correspondence of St. Augustine that has been preserved includes more than 270 letters, including well over 200 written by him. Those numbered 1-30 span the period between his conversion and his episcopal ordination.

by Augustine of Hippo in 394 | translated by J. G. Cunningham
