wealth of material in a well-structured way....this guide will be an indispensable tool for everybody interested in the City."--Church History

Book Description Oxford University Press, United Kingdom, 2004. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. The City of God is the most influential of Augustine s works, which played a decisive role in the formation of the Christian West. This book is the first comprehensive modern guide to it in any language. The City of God s scope embodies cosmology, psychology, political thought, anti-pagan polemic, Christian apologetic, theory of history, biblical interpretation, and apocalyptic themes. This book is, therefore, at once about a single masterpiece and at the same time surveys Augustine s developing views through the whole range of his thought. The book is written in the form of a detailed running commentary on each part of the work. Further chapters elucidate the early fifth-century political, social, historical, and literary background, the work s sources, and its place in Augustine s writings.The book should prove of value to Augustine s wide readership among students of late antiquity, theologians, philosophers, medievalists, Renaissance scholars, and historians of art and iconography.
