City of God (Penguin Classics)

City of God (Penguin Classics)


St Augustine, bishop of Hippo, was once one of many relevant figures within the heritage of Christianity, and City of God is certainly one of his maximum theological works. Written as an eloquent defence of the religion at a time whilst the Roman Empire was once close to cave in, it examines the traditional pagan religions of Rome, the arguments of the Greek philosophers and the revelations of the Bible. Pointing the best way ahead to a citizenship that transcends the simplest political reviews of the area and gives citizenship that might final for eternity, City of God is among the so much influential records within the improvement of Christianity.
