Selected Latin Texts and Critical Editions

The most common and most complete (but uncritical) edition of Augustine in Latin is the seventeenth century Maurist edition of Augustine's Opera Omnia which is reprinted in volumes 32–47 of J.P. Migne's Patrologiae Cursus Completus, Series Latina (Paris 1844–64), referred to below as PL. More critical texts are gradually emerging in four main series:

  • Corpus Scriptorum Ecclesiasticorum Latinorum, Vienna: Tempsky, 1865– [CSEL]
  • Corpus Christianorum, Series Latina, Turnhout: Brepolis, 1953– [CCL]
  • Bibliotheque Augustinenne, Oervres de Saint Augustin, Paris: Desclee De Brouwer, 1949– [BA]
  • Nuova Biblioteca Agostiniana, Opera de S. Agostino, edizione latino-italiana, Rome: Citta Nuova 1965– [NBA]

Given the voluminous number of Augustine's texts, the following list is confined to those especially relevant to the present article.
