Written by Augustine
Category: · History

“The bodies of irrational animals are bent toward the ground, whereas man was made to walk erect with his eyes on heaven, as though to remind him to keep his thoughts on things above.” – Augustine, City of God

Divided into 22 books, City of God is a Christian masterpiece devoted to the Kingdom of God. Augustine wrote it at a time when Romans thought the destruction around them was a direct consequence of their disregard for the old pagan ways. Augustine argues this view setting the cornerstone of modern Western philosophy and way of life.
