Confessions of Saint Augusine

Dominican bannerWelcome to the cwlibrary Digital Books Library. We're starting out with the Confessions of St. Augustine and will add more as we go. We plan on porting the Summa, writings of the Early Church Fathers, and other material provided by brother Dominican Robert Bean, T.O.P.

In the meantime, advertising-free sources of academic level resources are provided through IntraText CT.

IntraText CT is a text converted into an interactive hypertext system consisting of:

  • text, which you access from the index or from the concordances. If the text contains footnotes, these will appear at the foot of the text page and the general index will also contain an index of the footnotes;
  • word lists: these are ordered alphabetically, by frequency of occurrence, in inverse order and by length. The words in the lists are linked to the concordances;
  • concordances: lists comprising every occurrence of a particular word in the text. Each occurrence is displayed in the centre of a short extract from the text;
  • statistics: word and occurrence statistics plus other features of the text.

The Church Fathers


Revelation ended with the death of the last apostle about 1900 years ago. What did the primitive church teach 100 years after Christ died? 200 years? 400 years ago?

On essential doctrine, the Church Fathers (our early Catholic priests, bishops and theologians) taught then largely what the Church holds forth today. And on essential dogma regarding sacraments, grace and salvation, they are identical.

Not to say that debate didn't take place in the early history of the Church. The Church fathers appear to have spent much of their time clarifying doctrine and refuting heresies. The more things change, the more they stay the same.

But don't take our word for it. The words and studies of our Christian ancestors are here for your review.
