The Creation narrative of the book of Genesis was for Augustine Scripture par excellence. He wrote at least five sustained treatises on those chapters (if we include the last three books of Confessions and Books XI–XIV of The City of God).

Augustine had much to say about the Christian doctrine of creation in his many writings. Here are three specific areas of thought. On the Creation ’ s Origin. In his most famous work, Confessions, Augustine seems to foreshadow modern cosmological understanding: Therefore you must have created them from nothing, the one great, the other small.

On Augustine and Creation, the entry says this: “In "The Literal Interpretation of Genesis" Augustine took the view that everything in the universe was created simultaneously by God, and not in seven calendar days like a plain account of Genesis would require.

As Augustine worked out his doctrine of creation, he was led to a robust affirmation of creation out of nothing, and to reflect upon the nature of time. For Augustine it is a changeless and timeless God who creates out of nothing.

Yet Augustine didn’t know Hebrew and only attained a modest knowledge of Greek by the end of his life, after he had written his three commentaries on Genesis (and his book City of God, in which he also commented on Genesis 1–11). 9 Augustine based his work on the Old Latin Version.

On Christian Doctrine, in Four Books Saint Augustine and philosophy may be turned to a Christian use. And in conclusion, he shows the spirit in which it behoves us to address ourselves to the study and interpretation of the sacred books.

Augustine emphasizes the view that God's creation of the universe did not occur at any point in time, since time only came into being with creation: there was no "before." God has nothing to do with time, and in his eyes all time is present as one unified moment.

Augustine refers to this Platonic "ascent of the soul" in Book 9 of the Confessions. Christians, for their part, were deeply suspicious of Platonism and of all the. “Augustine's most extensive discussions of philosophical and theological cosmology are found in his commentaries on Genesis (De Genesi contra Manichaeos, De Genesi ad litteram imperfectus liber, De Genesi ad litteram libri duodecim), in the last three books of the Confessions, and in Books 11 and 12 of the De civitate Dei.

Augustine lived.
