Modern English translations of it are sometimes published under the title The Confessions of St. Augustine in order to distinguish the book from other books with similar titles

The work outlines St. Augustine's sinful youth and his conversion to Christianity.

It is generally considered one of Augustine's most important texts.

Giovanni Francesco "Gianfrancesco" Straparola (ca. 1480–ca. 1557) was an Italian writer and fairy tale collector from Caravaggio, Italy. He has been termed the progenitor of the literary form of the fairy tale. Charles Perrault borrowed most of his stories from Giovanni Francesco Straparola and Giambattista Basile. Straparola's main work is a two-volume collection, "Le piacevoli notti" (published in English as "The Nights of Straparola" or "The Facetious Nights of Straparola"), with 75 stories. Modeled on Decamerone, it has participants of a 13-night party on the island of Murano, near Venice, tell each other stories that vary from bawdy to fantastic. It contains the first known written versions of many fairy tales.

The Ser Giovanni (14th century) work is a collection of 50 comic, tragic and licentious novellas. Contains elements later found in Shakespeare including the bond with a Jew for a pound of flesh and the wooing of a lady at Belmont.
