Product description

Review

'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

'It reads remarkably well; it is elegant, generally succeeds in reproducing the rhetorical colouring Augustine frequently gives his argument, and, is remarkably faithful to the text. A short but helpful introduction … provides the necessary information about the context of the work, and summarises the main points of Augustine's political thought. The book is handsome and well produced.' Journal of Ecclesiastical History

Book Description

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. The translation is presented with full biographical notes, a concise introduction, bibliography, and chronology of Augustine's life.
