Augustine, De Trinitate and De civitate Dei

De Trinitate

In the autumn of 2014, a team of members of the Centre for Ancient and Medieval Philosophy (Monica Brînzei, Ioana Curuţ, Alexandra Baneu, Alexandra Anisie, Luciana Cioca, Daniel Coman, Alin Luca, Cristian Bejan, Andrei Marinca, Vlad Ile, Alexander Baumgarten) formed a team that aimed at offering a bilingual edition of the Augustinian treatise On the Trinity. The motivation for the birth of this project was linked to the team’s efforts of identifying Augustinian sources in the 14th century philosophy, but also to the universal necessity for this patristic source of utmost importance in the history of philosophy to exist in the Romanian language and, generally, in the history of ideas. The group of translators meets at weekly public seminars dedicated to the text and foresees the publication of this volume for the year 2021.

De civitate Dei

In 2020, a team of members and collaborators of the Centre for Ancient and Medieval Philosophy (Lavinia Grijac, Mihai Maga, Cristian Bejan, Vlad Ile, Ioana Curuț, Emanuel Grosu, Carmen Fenechiu, Bogdan-Tătaru Cazaban, Alexander Baumgarten) was formed in order to make a bilingual edition of the Augustinian treatise On the city of God. The motivation for the birth of this project starts with the doctoral study of Lavinia Grijac, which is dedicated to the influence of Roman history in Augustine’s philosophy and theology of history, as well as the necessity for this fundamental sourse of universal culture to exist in the Romanian language. The team foresees the aparition of this book for the year 2024.
