The best Augustine websites
We’re still celebrating Augustine week around here, so here are some links to the best Augustine websites around the internet. These should be your starting point if you’re looking for Augustine’s works online, lists of good books and articles about Augustine, or links to other resources. I couldn’t find any good lists of lectures, which is why I compiled my own list of free audio resources yesterday.
Here are what I have found to be the best and most helpful Augustine websites on the internet (ranked by how useful they’ve been for me):
1. Augnet: an excellent resource that should be your starting point; particularly good for its biographical information on Augustine and introductions/summaries of many of his works.
2. Patristics Bibliobraphy #7: your one stop shopping center for bibliographic information on works about Augustine in 15 categories.
3. James O’Donnel: one of the best resources out there, but make sure you use this link since many of the others on the web point to an older (and unused) website.
4. Sant’ Agostino: the “works” link on this site offers a great list of works available online in English.
5. Ad Limina Apostolorum: a great (and easy to use) list of Augustine resources, though many of the links are dated.
6. Dave Armstrong: this link will take you to an archived version of the website (all I could find) with a nice list of online articles.
And, of course, you can’t neglect other websites devoted to patristics or church history in general. The following are among the better of those:
- Christian Classics Ethereal Library
- The Medieval Sourcebook
- New Advent
- Early Church Texts
- The Ecole Initiative
- Patristics in English Project
- St. Pachomius Library
- Bibliographies for the Study of Early Christianity & Patristic Theology
If you know of a really good website devoted to Augustine that you think is at least as good as the six I listed above, please let me know so I can check it out.
