The Metamorphoses Of The City Of God

by Étienne Gilson, The Metamorphoses Of The City Of God Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download The Metamorphoses Of The City Of God books, Étienne Gilson (1884-1978) was a French philosopher and historian of philosophy, as well as a scholar of medieval philosophy. In 1946 he attained the distinction of being elected an Immortal (member) of the Académie française. He was nominated for the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1959 and 1964. The appearance of Gilson's Metamorphosis of the City of God, which were originally delivered as lectures at the University of Louvain, Belgium, in the Spring of 1952, coincided with the first steps toward what would become the European Union. The appearance of this English translation coincides with the upheaval of Brexit. Gilson traces the various attempts of thinkers through the centuries to describe Europe's soul and delimit its parts. The Scots, Catalonians, Flemings, and probably others may nod in agreement in Gilson's observation on how odd would be a Europe composed of the political entities that existed two and a half centuries ago. Those who think the European Union has lost its soul may not be comforted by the difficulty thinkers have had over the centuries in defining that soul. Indeed the difficulties that have thus far prevented integrating Turkey into the EU confirm Gilson's description of the conundrum involved even in distinguishing Europe's material components. And yet, the endeavor has succeeded, so that the problem of shared ideals remain inescapable. One wonders which of the thinkers in the succession studied by Gilson might grasp assent and illuminate the EU's path.

The City Of God Abridged Study Edition

by Saint Augustine, The City Of God Abridged Study Edition Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download The City Of God Abridged Study Edition books, For all those who are interested in the greatest classics of Christian antiquity, The City of God is indispensable. This version also contains thought-provoking study questions at the end of each chapter. Along with his Confessions, The City of God is undoubtedly St. Augustine's most influential work. In the context of what begins as a lengthy critique of classic Roman religion and a defense of Christianity, Augustine touches upon numerous topics, including the role of grace, the original state of humanity, the possibility of waging a just war, the ideal form of government, and the nature of heaven and hell. But his major concern is the difference between the City of God and the City of Man – one built on love of God, the other on love of self. One cannot but be moved and impressed by the author's breadth of interest and penetrating intelligence.

The City Of God

by Saint Augustine of Hippo, The City Of God Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download The City Of God books, LARGE PRINT EDITION, easy to read layout, complete footnotes (>1000). "The City of God, for those who can understand it, contains the secret of death and life, war and peace, hell and heaven."-Thomas Merton "Of all the saints, Augustine is possibly the one who, as the Quakers phrase it, 'speaks most clearly to our condition.' Today as fifteen hundred years ago."-Anne Fremantle, Saints Alive! The philosopher Saint Augustine wrote The City of God (De civitate Dei contra paganos), a philosophical treatise vindicating Christianity, about 413-426 CE. With designs to solidify the Christianization of the Roman world, Saint Augustine has led one of the biggest battles against heresy. His love of rhetoric combined with his relentless philosophical search paved the way for his historic legacy-to this day. He influenced the work of Thomas Aquinas and John Calvin and many other theologians throughout the centuries. The first part (Books I-X) is a polemical critique of Roman religion and philosophy, corresponding to the Earthly City. The second half of The City of God (Books XI-XXII) turns to Augustine's defense of Christianity in the context of his philosophy and theology of history. BOOKS I-XII- also available The City of God-BOOKS XIII-XXII Excerpts: "The glorious city of God is my theme in this work, which you, my dearest son Marcellinus, suggested, and which is due to you by my promise. I have undertaken its defense against those who prefer their own gods to the Founder of this city-a city surpassingly glorious, whether we view it as it still lives by faith in this fleeting course of time, and sojourns as a stranger in the midst of the ungodly, or as it shall dwell in the fixed stability of its eternal seat, which it now with patience waits for, expecting until "righteousness shall return unto judgment,"1 and it obtain, by virtue of its excellence, final victory and perfect peace. A great work this, and an arduous; but God is my helper. For I am aware what ability is requisite to persuade the proud how great is the virtue of humility, which raises us, not by a quite human arrogance, but by a divine grace, above all earthly dignities that totter on this shifting scene. For the King and Founder of this city of which we speak, has in Scripture uttered to His people a dictum of the divine law in these words: "God resisteth the proud, but giveth grace unto the humble."2 But this, which is God's prerogative, the inflated ambition of a proud spirit also affects, and dearly loves that this be numbered among its attributes, to Show pity to the humbled soul, And crush the sons of pride.3 And therefore, as the plan of this work we have undertaken requires, and as occasion offers, we must speak also of the earthly city, which, though it be mistress of the nations, is itself ruled by its lust of rule." (1 Ps. 94:15, rendered otherwise in English versions. 2 Jas. 4:6 and 1 Pet. 5:5. 3 Virgil Æneid 6.854.)
