This book investigates and compares Augustine’s two commentaries on the opening chapters of Genesis: De Genesi contra Manicheos
, his first scriptural exegesis, and De Genesi ad Litteram
, the final and monumental version of his exploration of the creation. The book shows how Augustine’s exegesis of Genesis 1-3 progressed in the two commentaries. In so doing, the book suggests that there are two main factors to explain his progress: his notions of history and of the scriptures, which were developed and clarified during the period of the interval between the two commentaries.
