The De Doctrina Christiana ("On Christian Teaching") is one of
Augustine's most important works on the classical tradition.
Undertaken at the same time as the Confessions, it sheds light on
the development of Augustine's thought, especially in the areas
of ethics, hermeneutics, and sign-theory. This completely new
translation gives a close but updated representation of
Augustine's thought and expression, while a succinct introduction
and select bibliography present the insights of recent research.
