1888. Volume 7 of a 14 volume set. Augustin was an indefatigable preacher. He considered regular preaching an indispensable part of the duty of a bishop. To his homilies we owe most of his exegetical labors. The homilies were delivered extempore. They retain their colloquial form and devotional tone. He felt it imperative to be understood by the common man. This volume completes St. Augustin's exegetical writings on the New Testament. Contents: Homilies on the Gospel of John; Homilies on the First Epistle of John; Soliloquies.
