Augustin exégète et prédicateur dans les Sermons sur Matthieu

Abstract : In his preaching, does Augustine of Hippo adapt his biblical commentaries and, if so, according to what criteria? To answer this question, this book studies the exegesis of some twenty sermons preached on the Gospel of Matthew. The first chapter places them in their historical, geographical, polemical and liturgical contexts. The following chapters investigate the patristic tradition and the Augustinian works in order to shed light on the specificity of the interpretations; the rhetorical dimension is also taken into account. Through their scriptural interpretations, these sermons assume the concrete situation of the audience and are inserted into the dynamics of the liturgy from which they receive the material for the commentary and the finality that guides it. Their exegesis is situated at the intersection between the Word of God which it extends and implements (chapters 2 to 4) and the responses it seeks to elicit from the listeners (chapters 5 to 7). This desire to edify the listeners, both personally and communally, while aiming at spiritual progress and orthopraxis rooted in the confessed truth, helps to enlighten the preacher's adaptation of the Sermons on Matthew.
