Herzman, deal with everything from Roman history to Christian controversies at the time of Augustine to the corpus of the writings of Augustine. The 24th lecture looks forward from antiquity to the 21st century, pointing out authors who have been influenced by Augustine from his time to ours. All the other lectures are a continuous exegesis of and meditation on the 13 books that make up the Confessions.
