Through the mode of narration, language and form its possible to abstract the importance of confession to Augustine. Augustine addresses God in his writing, making the novel itself akin to a confession in church. In the opening passage Augustine establishes the rhetorical mode of narration he will use throughout the whole text. By quoting a psalm, “Grant me Lord to know and understand” (Augustine, 3) on the faith one must have in God, Augustine establishes himself with a knowledge base to better communicate that he is well versed in scripture and that his musings in the narrative have their basis in the Holy Book.

From influence of the enlightenment , christian faith was renewed. An established religion gave moral responsibilities , creates fear of doing wrong, and the sense of responsibility for doing it. Victorians read the bible very often and went to church regularly on Sundays. Not only were they religious but they also feared god. Towards the end of the era people started to question Christianity and this was due to science and the push of industrial revolution (BBC Primary History- victorian England).
