Jochen Sauer (Hrsg.), Augustinus: De civitate Dei. Fachwissenschaftliche und fachdidaktische Zugänge
The writing De civitate Dei by the religious philosopher and church father Augustine, written in the years 413-426, combines in many ways state and social theory, individual ethics and historical theology. Ancient philosophy is rethought from a Christian perspective. The five contributions in this volume take up the challenge of providing access to this demanding work and showing ways in which students of Latin in particular, but also students of the subject, can be introduced to the Augustinian theory of state and philosophy of religion.

Dietrich Klaus Hartmann, Archäologisch-baugeschichtliche Studie zu den Dorfkirchen im ehemaligen Bistum Konstanz
Volume 32 of the series Archäologische Berichte, published by the der Deutschen Gesellschaft für Ur- und Frühgeschichte, deals with the east of the former diocese of Constance (ca. 585 to 1821). This region is still largely rural with a rich church landscape dating back to the early Middle Ages. In the course of the last decades, archaeological investigations have been carried out on many of these churches, the results of which, however, have not yet been generally available. The evaluation compares in detail the different conditions under which the churches were built.
