Augustine the Austere: on the Genesis thrice. --1-- So you think the Paradise is a myth? Adam ate apple? Maybe Adam is our male, Eve our female side? Yin and Yang, left and right brain? Go, read and be surprised. --2-- Ever wondered what the Writ wants with that "thru a mirror darkly"? Or what has seen Moses of the invisible God? Come and read in De Genesi ad litteram, libro ultimo. --3-- AND LOOK! there is the De doctrina Christiana, too! Read, what a late antique Christian needs to know in order to properly understand the Writ. Almost everything, except Turbo Pascal and file sharing. Not a fundamentalist approach.
