Complete Works of Saint Augustine

A Translation for the 21st Century


In 1990, New City Press, in conjunction with the Augustinian Heritage Institute, began translating Saint Augustine's entire corpus into English. At that time, English was the only major Western language into which the Complete Works had not yet been attempted. Existing translations were often archaic or faulty, and the scholarship was outdated. Augustine's writings are useful to anyone interested in patristics, church history, and theology. New City Press is proud to offer the best modern translations available.

St. Augustine's complete works will be translated into 46 books (for more details download a pdf). To date, over 35 books have been translated and published by NCP. The first was Sermons 1-19 and the latest is The New Testament vol. 1 and 2.
