RIP Fr. Edmund Hill, O.P.
I just learned today that Fr. Edmund Hill, O.P., died last November 11th. Not as well known as he might have been, he deserves our lasting gratitude for his contributions to the project of publishing all of the works of St. Augustine. The most important of these were his versions of the Sermons, of “On the Trinity,” and “On Christian Teaching.” He made the sermons read like spoken sermons, not like lectures, and his notes to all three of his translations were illuminating and often very entertaining. Requiescat in pace.
Here is a memorial essay on Fr. Hill by Fergus Kerr, O.P., the present editor of New Blackfriars.
