Chapter Summary

This chapter offers a reading of two of Augustines sermones ad populum traditionally associated with the liturgical period around Pentecost during his stay in Carthage in 397, namely sermones 29 and 29A. It first focuses on this specific visit to Carthage. The chapter then offers a succinct status quaestionis on Augustines Pentecost homilies. It discusses two specific homilies, sermones 29 and 29A, which are in the secondary literature connected with the feast of Pentecost. Each sermon first is introduced by placing it in its historical and chronological framework, making the link with the Augustines Carthaginian visit of 397. The chapter concisely summarizes the content of each sermon. This content is evaluated regarding its connection with the Pentecost theme, Augustines homiletic style and methodology, and the audience that likely attended this sermon.
