Augustine of Hippo remains one of the most renowned church fathers and philosophers. His work, City of God, “is an apology for Christianity against the accusations that the Church was responsible for the decline of the Roman Empire. It interprets human history as a conflict between the City of God, which includes the body of Christians belonging to the Church, and the Earthly City, composed of pagans and heretical Christians. Augustine foresees that, through the will of God, the people of the City of God will eventually win immortality, while those in the Earthly City will win destruction.” #0030
