‘Grant me, then, a time for my meditations on the hidden things of your law... It is not your will that the deep secrets of all those pages should be written in vain. Those forests are not without stags in them, walking and feeding, resting and ruminating. Perfect me, O Lord, and reveal their secrets to me. Behold, your voice is my joy... (Confessions XI, 2, 3.) In this third tome, Bertrand de Margerie also enters into a shady woodland - contiguous to the Bible, a favourite habitat of exegetic animals- the vast domain of Augustine’s commentaries on the Scriptures. Apart from the plurality of meaning in Moses’ intentions, a Pauline reading of Psalm 118, the theology of the Holy Spirit and the exegesis of ‘The Love that is in God’ according to Origen, the author is particularly interested in the genesis of Augustine’s teaching on the Holy Spirit, considered as the communion of love which, in the Trinity, unites the Father and the Son. To better perceive the unity between the Bible, theology, spirituality and Christian life, i.e. between the Scriptures and the living Tradition of the Church; that is the ambition of these four volumes of ‘Introduction à l histoire de l'exégèse’ which Bertrand de Margerie published in the 1980s. In this third volume, the abundant work of Augustine of Hippo gives full leeway to such a remarkable enterprise.
