The City of God, written in the aftermath of the sack of Rome in 410 CE, is Augustine's most influential work. It is wide in scope, embracing political thought, anti-pagan polemic, biblical interpretation, human sexuality, and apocalyptic themes. Students of Antiquity, Christian and Pagan philosophy, and the Middle Ages and most educated people, will want to have at least some acquaintance with this vast work. In this course, we shall read selections from the unabridged version and discuss the reading in class. No papers. Grade is based on class discussion and on one short exam.
