- Confessions- Augustine of Hippo
In Confessions, Augustine tells the story of his sinful youth and conversion to Christianity. He describes his ascent from a humble farm in North Africa to a prestigious post in Milan, his struggle against his own sexuality, his renunciation of secular ambition and marriage, and the recovery of his faith. Augustine's concerns are often strikingly contemporary, and the confessional mode he invented can be seen in writings today.
