Augustine’s strongly critical attitude towards his own intellectual and existential development is evident not only in the Confessiones. His capacity for critical self-reflection is also apparent in a letter to Marcellinus from 412 (ep. 143,2), in De natura et gratia (415), and in De praedestinatione sanctorum (429)¹. After 426/427, his pursuit of this goal led him to write three treatises, two of which were to become the inspiration for new literary genres. Unfortunately all three works remained incomplete.
