City of God (pt. 1)

I decided to start reading St. Augustine's classic work "City of God" on the Fall of Rome and which God or gods were responsible, etc.

I found it interesting as I constantly hear people in the Reformation traditions call Augustine their 'homeboy' , and then sit down to read this book. First argument: Saints' and Martyrs' relics were a source of divine protection even from unbelieving and Pagan attackers.

Next time someone asks what my theological views are, I should say "I'm in the Augustinian tradition, I believe in the conservatory power of relics"
