“It is within the power of all… to contemplate clearly the tradition of the apostles manifested throughout the whole world; and… to reckon up those who were by the apostles instituted bishops in the Churches, and… the succession of these men to our own times… whom also they were leaving behind as their successors, delivering up their own place of government to these men; which men, if they discharged their functions honestly, would be a great boon… but if they should fall away, the direst calamity.
“[W]e do put to confusion all those who… assemble in unauthorized meetings… by indicating that tradition derived from the apostles, of the very great, the very ancient, and universally known Church founded and organized at Rome by the two most glorious apostles, Peter and Paul; as also the faith preached to men, which comes down to our time by means of the successions of the bishops…
“The blessed apostles, then, having founded and built up the Church, committed into the hands of Linus the office of the episcopate… To him succeeded Anacletus… Clement… Evaristus. Alexander… Sixtus… Telephorus… Hyginus… Pius… Anicetus. Soter… Eleutherius does now, in the twelfth place from the apostles, hold the inheritance of the episcopate.
“In this order, and by this succession, the ecclesiastical tradition from the apostles, and the preaching of the truth, have come down to us. And this is most abundant proof that there is one and the same vivifying faith, which has been preserved in the Church from the apostles until now, and handed down in truth.” (Bishop St. Irenaeus of Lyon, Against Heresies, III, iii, ca. 180 AD)

- The City of God, by Aurelius Augustine, Bishop of Hippo, translated [from Saint Augustine’s De Civitate Dei contra Paganos] by the Rev. Marcus Dods, M.A., with Books IV, XVII, and XVIII translated by the Rev. George Wilson and Books V, VI, VII, and VIII translated by the Rev. J. J. Smith. (Edinburgh: T. & T. Clark, 38, George Street, 1871). Part of The Works of Aurelius Augustine, Bishop of Hippo, A New Translation, edited by the Rev. Marcus Dods, M.A.
- The text is available online in pdf, epub, kindle, and other formats. Volume I is available at Project Gutenberg and Internet Archive, with another edition (Edinburgh: T. & T. Clark, 1913) available at Internet Archive. Volume II is available at Project Gutenberg and Internet Archive.
- The audiobook of the entire work, read by Darren L. Slider, is available at LibriVox, and is reproduced in 4 parts on the Youtube channel Classic Catholic Audiobooks: Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, and Part 4.
- The text of the Dods translation was republished in Nicene and Post-Nicene Fathers, First Series, Vol. 2, edited by Philip Schaff (Buffalo, NY: Christian Literature Publishing Co., 1887), which may be read, less footnotes, on this page of Catholic Culture.org. The said republished text, as revised and edited by Kevin Knight, may be read online at on this page of New Advent and is available in pdf format on this page of Documenta Catholica Omnia. It is also included in the app iPieta available on the Google Play Store and the Apple App Store.
- Note: The Schaff edition as printed is also available for qualified readers (i.e., those with sufficient theological formation) at the Online Library of Liberty, among other online sources. However, the non-Catholic editors inserted unscholarly interpretative notes among the otherwise valuable footnotes, by which, for the sake of their diabolical Protestant heresies, they attempt to blunt the Catholic witness of Saint Augustine. For this reason general readers (i.e., those without sufficient theological formation) are advised to avoid the original Schaff edition as printed.
