The Works of Saint Augustine
A Translation for the 21st Century

In 1990, New City Press, in conjunction with the Augustinian Heritage Institute, began the project knows as: The Works of Saint Augustine, A Translation for the 21st Century. The plan is to translate and publish all 132 works of Saint Augustine, his entire corpus into modern English. This represents the first time in which The Works of Saint Augustine will all be translated into English. Many existing translations were often archaic or faulty, and the scholarship was outdated. New City Press is proud to offer the best modern translations available. The Works of Saint Augustine, A Translation for the 21st Century will be translated into 49 published books. To date, 42 books have been published by NCP containing 93 of The Works of Saint Augustine, A Translation for the 21st Century. Augustine's writings are useful to anyone interested in patristics, church history, theology and Western civilization.

New City Press is one of more than 20 publishing houses of the Focolare Movement. Founded in 1943 by Chiara Lubich, the Focolare began with a small community in Trent, Italy, who felt called to bring about the unity that Jesus prayed for to the Father: “That they may all be one” (Jn 17:21 ). Today, it is a worldwide movement approved by the Catholic Church.

The mission of New City Press is to develop and promote the Focolare’s vision that all people are part of the one human family. It publishes both scholarly and popular works that attempt to foster a greater unity in the world. Our books explore theological foundations for faith and spirituality, ecumenical and interreligious initiatives, and connections between religion and human identity, relationships, and culture. They also aim at being practical tools that share real-world examples of how people put the gospel into practice.

New City Press is a member of the Association of Catholic Publishers and is located in Hyde Park, New York.

If we look at our own cities, what people yearn for today is precisely a ‘new city,’ a ‘living city’ and a ‘fraternal city’ where, beyond every division, we are sisters and brothers to each other. Our goal is to be a pathway to fraternity, a means of dialogue at all levels, and an instrument of communion and oneness.
Chiara Lubich, January 2006

Note from the Publisher

In Spirit and Life, July-August 2014, the magazine of the Benedictine Sisters of Perpetual Adoration, Sr. Bede Luetkemeyer, OSB wrote a wonderful article on: Reading: Sacred and Secular. Here are some points that she makes which encourage “wise reading.”

  • Reading can teach us about the world we live in or about the world we hope for.
  • Reading fills the minds with good thoughts, broadens our view of the world.
  • Reading teaches us many good things.
  • Reading draws forth our admiration for heroes, the good and holy people who have bequeathed to the world the riches of their own intellect and wisdom.

Click here to read the full article.

Let’s join Sr. Bede in her prayer at the end of the article: “May the spirit of wisdom and truth spread in our world through the benefit of wise reading.”
