Nicene and Post-Nicene Fathers: Series I/Volume II/City of God/Book XVI

Book XVI.


Argument—In the former part of this book, from the first to the twelfth chapter, the progress of the two cities, the earthly and the heavenly, from Noah to Abraham, is exhibited from Holy Scripture:  In the latter part, the progress of the heavenly alone, from Abraham to the kings of Israel, is the subject.
