Sermons on the Liturgical Seasons
Renowned for his homiletic virtuosity, Augustine has been credited with hundreds of sermons. This collection of eighty-two sermons on the holy days and seasons of the Christian calendar includes specimens of Augustine's preaching on Christmas, New Year, Epiphany, Lent, the Easter Vigil, Easter Sunday, the Easter season, and Ascension, as well as exhortations to Christians who were newly baptized (at the Easter Vigil). His conversational tone and his penchant for images and symbolism are outstanding features of this collection.
