Excerpt from Sancti Aureli Augustini Contra Academicos Libri Tres: De Beata Vita Liber Unus, De Ordine Libri Duo

Opuscula tria, quae hoc uolumine continentur, prima sunt, quae a s. Augustine scripta nobis sernats sunt; nam illi duo aut tres libri, De pulchro et apto', quos, cum adhuc Karthagine artem rhetoricam doceret, ad Hierium urbis Romae oratorem condiderat (conf. IV 13, 20 nobis traditi non sunt neque neri simile est eos illo tempore, quo Augustinus Retractationes librorum snorum scripsit, superstites fuisse. Haec autem opuscula eo tempore composuit, quo peractis feriis uindemialibus anni p. Ch. 386 se professione rhetorica Mediolanensi abdicauerat et, ut ualetudini parceret, in agro Cassiciaco familiarissimi Verccundi grammatici prope Mediolanium sito adhuc catechu menus nondum baptizatus cum matre propinquis familiaribus morabatur. Orta sunt ex compluribus di3putationibus, quas mense Nouembri eiusdem anni, cum ipse tri'cesimum tertium aetatis annum ageret (c. Acad. III 43. P. 80, E), Soliloq. I cum amicis et discipulis habuit. Paucis enim diebus post quam Mediolanio relicto in nilla esse coepit, disputatio illa inchoata sed non absoluta est, ex qua libri Contra Academicos originem traxerunt (c. Ac.i 1, 4. P. 6, libellum autem, qui De beata m'ta agit, non post libros C. Acad., sed inter illos scriptum esse ipse in Retr. I 2, 1 testatur; ortus ex disputatione, quam die natali suo, ipsis Idibus Nouembribus anni 386 et duobus deinceps diebus habuit, tridui disputatione absolutus est.
