Augustine: De Civitate Dei The City of God Books XI and XII

Edited and Translated by P. G. Walsh

Liverpool University Press

Aris and Phillips Classical Texts

In Books I-V of De Civitate Dei , Augustine rejects the claim that worship of the pagan gods had brought success in this life, and in Books VI-X, the prospect of a happy afterlife. In Books XI-XII, the sixth volume in Peter Walsh's series, Augustine turns from attack to defence, for at this point he initiates his apology for the Christian faith.
