In "De trinitate" III and "De Genesi ad litteram" VI Augustine considers miracles as a result of the action of causal reasons originally placed by God in physical elements. On the contrary, in "De Genesi ad litteram" IX Augustine underlines miracle's dependence on other causal reasons not involved in creation, but hidden in God's will. This paper attemps a reconciliation of these two different accounts, showing that Augustine, by suggesting a model of cooperation between divine and created causalities, theorizes a solid and, at the same time, hierarchically structured notion of nature.
