This minisode features a sample of text written in the early 5th century by Augustine, Bishop of Hippo, in north Africa. The text which is read is from Book 19 Chapter 20 of “The City of God.”
In this rather massive book, written after the Visigoths sacked Rome in 410 A.D., Augustine makes the case that the abandonment of the old Roman gods did not lead to this crisis. Rather, Augustine contrasts the City of Man (Earthly ways of conducting life) with the City of God (Heavenly ways of conducting life).
