The Confessions, along with The City of God and On the Trinity (De Trinitate), are the three major works of Augustine.
On all levels - theological, literary, psychological - the Confessions stands as a masterpiece.
Through it, we learn a great deal about the early years of Augustine, his encounters with Manicheism, his Skepticism, his meeting Ambrose of Milan, and his conversion to the Christian Faith.
One recent source estimates that 1,651 editions of Confessions were published between 1470 and 2007 in thirty languages, and held by 4,965 libraries worldwide
