Product Description

A cornerstone of Western thought! Written to refute pagan claims that Christianity brought about Rome's downfall, Augustine's classic work is a veritable charter for a Christian future. Chronicling human events as an age-old struggle between good and evil, he casts them in light of a cosmic march toward eternity. Discover why many read Western history as mere "footnotes" to Augustine. 892 pages, hardcover from Random House.

Publisher's Description

One of the great cornerstones in the history of Christian philosophy, The City of God provides an insightful interpretation of the development of modern Western society and the origin of most Western thought. Contrasting earthly and heavenly cities--representing the omnipresent struggle between good and evil--Augustine explores human history in its relation to all eternity. In Thomas Merton's words, "The City of God is the autobiography of the Church written by the most Catholic of her great saints."

This Modern Library Paperback Classics edition is a complete and unabridged version of the Marcus Dods translation.


From the Trade Paperback edition.

Editorial Reviews

"The human mind can understand truth only by thinking, as is clear from Augustine."
