Roger Pearse strikes again

For those who may find it useful, I've scanned and placed online
Weiskotten's English translation (1919) of Possidius' Life of St.
Augustine. It's here:

http://www.tertullian.org/fathers/possidius_life_of_augustine_02_text.ht
m

Possidius was a friend of Augustine's, and his biography remains the
principal source for the life of the saint.

Other English translations of the Fathers can be found in the
collection:

http://www.tertullian.org/fathers

I also do a CDROM of the collection; if people would like to support
the site, you can purchase it from here:

http://www.tertullian.org/fathers/all_the_fathers_on_cd.htm

At the moment sales of these are being spent on commissioning
translations of three untranslated texts; the "Gospel problems and
solutions" of Eusebius of Caesarea; the "Apologeticus ad imperatorem"
of Cyril of Alexandria; and the "Commentary on the Nicene Creed" of the
Arabic writer Al-Majdalus.

That's marvellously timely, Larry: I just got into the long argument about whether Augustine was black again earlier on today. (The answer being of course, we don't know, no-one thought it important enough to say...)

Let's just say he was sun-tanned.....;)
