THE little work of St. Cyprian’s which is here presented in an English translation is in a very true and real sense an ” EARLY CHURCH CLASSIC,” for it was early accorded by the Church the position of the recognized standard treatise on the LORD’S PRAYER. So high was the esteem in which it was held that St. Hilary of Poitiers, writing just one hundred years later (A. D. 354), considered himself relieved from the task of commenting on the LORD’S PRAYER when, in the course of his Exposition on St. Matthew, he came to Chapter vi. 9-13, preferring rather to send his readers to St. Cyprian’s well-known book

The soul of man was for Saint Augustine an object of life-long study and investigation., He was not particularly concerned about the soul as such, the plant soul, or the irrational soul of the brute, except insofar as a study of these might serve to throw some light on the nature and activities of the human soul. His interest in the soul of man was not actuated by mere curiosity to know for the sake of knowing, but he sought to know the human soul as a means whereby he might arrive at a clearer and better understanding of the Supreme Being.
The concept of the human soul as it appears in the writings of Saint Augustine is not set forth in a systematic manner, but the elements that enter into its make-up are found widely scattered through his various philosophical, apologetical, polemical, exegetical, and dogmatical works. He wrote a few special treatises on the human soul, but he never attempted to construct an organized philosophy of the soul.
The present thesis proposes to collect and coordinate the philosophical fragments of Saint Augustine’s doctrine of the human soul and to interpret these in the light of his mental progress. There is a tendency on the part of some commentators to over-emphasize the Platonic character of Augustine’s doctrine of the human soul. It is true that those works which were published during the first few years of his career manifest the strong influence of his recent study of Neo-Platonism. The treatises, however, which belong to that period when he was Bishop of Hippo and one of the most renowned scholars of his day stamp him unquestionably as a Christian philosopher. It is indispensable to the correct understanding of Augustine’s concept of the human soul that due regard be paid to the development which characterizes his doctrine.
VICAR OF ITCHENSTOKE, HANTS;
AND EXAMINING CHAPLAIN TO THE LORD BISHOP OF OXFORD.
JOHN W. PARKER, WEST STRAND.
IT is not my intention to offer in this present essay any estimate of the worth of St. Augustine’s theology, regarded as a whole, but so far as possible to confine myself to the subject indicated by its title, and to consider him in a single light, that is, as an interpreter of Holy Scripture. An essay undertaking this, if it were not closely watched in its growth, might easily, and almost unawares, pass into that, and thus become quite another thing from that which it was intended to be : yet it does not appear to me that an attempt to trace his leading characteristics as an expositor, to estimate his accomplishments, moral and mental, for being a successful one, to set forth the rules and principles of exposition which he either expressly laid down or habitually acted on, and to give a few specimens of his actual manner of interpretation, (which is all I propose to myself here,) need involve the logical necessity of going on to consider his whole scheme of theology. Between so great and arduous a work as that, and the comparatively humbler, and certainly more limited task which I have undertaken here, a line of distinction may very justly be drawn, and if due watchfulness is exercised, may without any great difficulty be observed.

This Handbook is intended to give the visitor to Rome full information about the Christian side of its history, about Roman churches, ceremonies, and customs, which does not fall within the scope of such an excellent Handbook as that of Messrs. Murray’s general Guide.
It was to have formed one volume, but the matter gradually exceeded all limits ; and it is now hoped that this little series of books (of which the present is much the largest) may prove as convenient, dealing as each volume will do, with a subject complete in itself.
We cannot hope that among so much detail we have been able to avoid all error ; nor that we have always made the same choice as all our readers would have done, as to what pieces of information to give, and what to reluctantly withhold. When a choice has had to be made, we have elected to tell what is less generally known.
There’ remains only the pleasure of recalling the many kindnesses we have received, and of taking this opportunity of thanking all who have helped us with information, or by suggesting books.
Our gratitude is specially due to Monsignor J, A. Campbell, Rector of the Scotch College in Rome, for unwearied helpfulness, and readiness in answering an infinity of questions, and for the courtesy of placing his library at our disposal : and for the kind help given us by Padre Semeria, Barnabite.
For the archaeological portion of this handbook we are much indebted to conferences held on the spot by the late Commendatore G.-B. De Rossi, and by his pupil Professor Orazio Marucchi. And we desire also to thank Professor Barnabei and the Ministry of Public Instruction in Rome for facilities courteously afforded us.
Today, some of the volumes which begun to the CSCO – Scriptores Syri, has been added as collection to the Scribd service. This allow the visitors and members of our community the ability to read online these books, having all the time this precious reference at hand.
This magnificent work has been realized by Pilipos.
This awesome magazine has been published with a comprehensive index in our website. But this day, a kind and generous member of our community has added these volumes as a collection available in Scribd.
