Written between AD 413 and 426, iThe City of Godi is one of the great cornerstones in the history of Christian thought, a book vital to the understanding of modern Western society.pAugustine originally intended it to be an apology for Christianity against the accusation that the Church was responsible for the decline of the Roman Empire. Indeed, Augustine produced a great amount of evidence to prove that paganism was responsible for this event.pHowever, by the time the work was finished, it had taken on a larger theme: a cosmic interpretation of history in terms of the conflict between good (the City of God) and evil (the Earthly City). Augustine foresees that through the will of God, the people of the City of God will eventually win immortality, and those in the Earthly City, destruction.pTranslated by Marcus Dods.
