1243 pages. Softcover. Brand new book. RELIGION. This is the first new rendition for a generation of The City of God, the first major intellectual achievement of Latin Christianity and one of the classic texts of Western civilisation. Robert Dyson has produced a complete, accurate, authoritative, and fluent translation of De civitate dei, edited together with full biographical notes, a concise introduction, bibliography, and chronology of Augustine's life. The result is one of the most important single contributions to the Cambridge Texts series yet published, of interest to students of ecclesiastical history, the history of political thought, theology, philosophy, and late antiquity. Translated into English from the Latin by R. W. Dyson. Includes an Index."Dyson's wonderfully lucid, carefully literal and historically sensitive translation … makes this the edition that most readers will now choose to consult … We must be grateful for this excellent new translation."-The Times Higher Education Supplement (Key Words: St. Augustine, City of God, R. W. Dyson, Political Thought, Christianity, Pagans, Kingdom of God, Apologetics).
