Reading Augustine in the Reformation

The theologians at the University of Leuven were not only the censors of Erasmus’ edition of Augustine, but also responsible for the third major edition project in the sixteenth century (Antwerp 1576–7). This edition claimed to offer the authoritative, Catholic, Augustine. Yet an analysis of the textual presentation shows that the edition in fact offered a more neutral presentation than the Erasmian editions. Against the background of this result, the chapter explores the interaction between censorship and scholarly development in the age of confessionalism.

Keywords:   Augustine of Hippo, Counter-Reformation, Tridentine, Catholicism, University of Leuven, censorship, confessionalism
