As already the title wishes to underline, the subject of the article doesn’t concern a more or less convincing aesthetics of Augustine, but the question about the role that the philosophy of Augustine – and in particular his idea of truth as revelation, far from the classical paradigm of the adaequatio –, has had in the formation of Aesthetics. In fact, since Soliloquia and De mendacio, we see how Augustine contended with a concept of truth capable of taking into account the requests raised by the model of scriptural truth. A truth whose mystery is attainable thanks to an interior disposition of mind rather than the simple reasoning. Hence the deep analogies, even though non-immediately visible, with Aesthetics, which in the secularized modernity is going to place the feeling above the knowledge.
