Fathers of the Church

Letter XCIV

Description

In this letter St. Paulinus of Nola and his wife Therasia ask Augustine some questions concerning both our present life and the nature of our risen bodies. It was omitted from the printed edition because its contents are clear from Augustine’s reply (letter XCV).

Provenance

The extant correspondence of St. Augustine includes more than 270 letters, including well over 200 written by him. Those numbered 31-123 span the period from his episcopal ordination until the conference between Catholic and Donatist bishops held in 411.
