Books 1-10 contain Augustine’s critique of the Roman religious, political, and intellectual tradition explaining that Rome’s traditional gods were neither able to provide happiness in this life nor in the life to come.
The City of God (Books 1-10) – PB
Part I – Books, Volume 6
Along with his Confessions, The City of God is undoubtedly St. Augustine’s most influential work. This long-awaited translation by William Babcock is published in two volumes. For all those who are interested in the greatest classics of Christian antiquity, The City of God is indispensible. Books 1-10 contain Augustine’s critique of the Roman religious, political, and intellectual tradition and prepare the way for the great vision of the two cities that he sets out in Books 11-22.
