The aim of the article is to present an introduction to the main themes of Augustines City of God. The key issues concerning the inception and contents of the work are highlighted. The article emphasises that Biblical interpretation played a pivotal role in this work, which is perhaps the most influential of Augustines oevre. It is probably because of his work, De ciuitate Dei, that the Church Father Augustine is also influential in the field of the history of Biblical hermeneutics.
