It’s time for a big-picture look at Church history! Timothy S.
Flanders joins the podcast to discuss his book City of
God vs. City of Man: The Battles of the Church from Antiquity to
the Present. The book is a synthesis of the approaches of St.
Augustine and Christopher Dawson, whom Timothy calls the two
greatest Catholic historians.
Themes discussed include:
- The Hebrew (Old Testament) view of history
- The need for alliance between the “strict” and “moderate”

- Ethnic pluralism in Christendom
- The Grand Coalition of the Status Quo
- The ideology of Roma and its role in the Eastern schism
- The love of money as a key factor in the breakdown of
