"You are my Lord, because You have no need of my goodness."

Designed to show the details of the soul's progress, from enjoyment of the beauties outside itself to a study of its own nature and finally to joy in the knowledge of God, Confessions was the first work in literature to be concerned entirely with an introspective analysis of the author's own spiritual and emotional experiences. Its original title was Confessions in Thirteen Books and it was composed to be read out loud with each book being a complete unit.

The work outlines Augustine's sinful youth and his conversion to Christianity. It is widely seen as the first Western autobiography ever written, and was an influential model for Christian writers throughout the following 1,000 years of the Middle Ages.

Confessions is presented here with links to free complete audio recordings as well as a stunning image gallery showcasing art inspired by Augustine's work over the centuries with examples from Benozzo Gozzoli, Ary Scheffer, Fra Angelico, Jaume Huguet, Carlo Crivelli, Philippe de Champaigne, Peter Paul Rubens, Vittore Carpaccio and Antonio Rodriguez.
