Epigraph
Dedication
First words
[The opening of Chapter I]

"Catastrophic moments in world history have always proved an incitement to speculation. They have stimulated attempts to define the historical process and to build up this or that philosophy of history. It has been so always. St. Augustine's was the first notable philosophy of history. It was worked out during the early Christian period and determined to a large extent the elaboration of future philosophies of history. Moreover, it coincided with one of the most catastrophic moments of world history--the collapse of the ancient world and the fall of Rome."
