0 2 pages; Augustine of Hippo (Thagaste, 354 - Hippo, 430) - De civitate Dei - Freiburg, Kilian Fischer, 1494 - this edition has the commentaries of Thomas Valois (1287-1350) and Nicolas Triveth (1258-1334). One leaf, two pages. A genuine and original incunable leaf. 2 text columns in Latin on both sides, from book 4; 29.5 × 21.5 cm - with coloured initials. Botes: De civitate Dei (literally: About the city of God) is a work of Church father Augustine, written between 413 and 426, in Latin. The work was published in 22 books and is an apology of the Christian faith. A series of treatises on various subjects, including Greek philosophy, the birth of God's state and the secular state and the fight between the two. Social, economic and political problems are covered. The Roman concept of the just war (bellum iustum) was integrated into the Christian tradition. Written as a reaction to the Sack of Rome by Alaric I in 410. Augustine started his work in 412; in 426 he wrote the last 4 parts. In the first five books he disputes the charge of non-Christians that the fall of Rome would be a punishment of gods for abandoning the ancient Roman religion. In the next five books he attempts to refute the thesis that sacrificing to many gods is favourable to life in the hereafter, and especially in the books VIII, IX and X Augustine counters the arguments of the neo-Platonic philosophers. Books XI to XXII deal with the city of God and the city of the world, their origin, their development and their future, being an early form of the two kingdoms doctrine. There have been many commentaries translated inyo many languages. This work is repsonsible for much of the corpus of Christian Theology. N° de ref. de la librería 38475
