The St Alypius Group usually has about fifteen members. It meets each Wednesday in the El Escorial to read some part of the writings of St Augustine, and a commentary upon them. Their advisor is Fr Antonio Iturbe O.S.A., the Prior of the Augustinian religious community in the Escorial.
At present the group is studying Book XII of the City of God by Augustine.
Part of this procedure is to prepare a reading guide on the sections of Augustine that they study, and this material is then published in the magazine of the Matritense (Augustinian) Province, for the benefit of other groups. In this way, material has been presented so far on other writings of St Augustine, including Confessions, and his early writings - Soliloquies, De Ordine (“On order”), and De Beata Vita (“On the happy life.’)
