About the Authors
  • As a major statement of Augustine's thought, in which he develops his philosophy of mind, On the Trinity had a considerable influence on medieval philosophy, and continues to interest philosophers today. This edition presents it together with a philosophical and historical introduction by Gareth Matthews, and useful notes on further reading.

    • Gareth Matthews is an extremely distinguished authority on Augustine
    • On the Trinity is one of the most important of medieval texts
    • This edition targets philosophers and emphasizes the philosophical significance of the work, which hasn't been done before

    Reviews & endorsements

    'Augustine as a philosopher rather than a theologian … an unusual and refreshing approach … McKenna's translation is eminently readable, while remaining close to the original meaning of the text … This book contrives to restore Augustine to his place among philosophers without denying his status as a theologian.' Philosophical Writings

    'This book is well worth reading not only as an impressive display of the intellectual powers of a giant of western thought, but also as a reminder that the middle ages were not the philosophical desert that so many contemporaries seem to think they were.' Practical Philosophy
