The City and the Pilgrim

  • Lynette R. Muir
Part of the New Studies in Medieval History book series


The universe and the world, the society of past and present in which he lived and worked and had his being — these were only part of the reality of existence for medieval man who knew himself to be, in Augustine’s words, a citizen of two cities, the city of the world and the city of God. ‘Here is no abiding city’: man is constantly on the move, a quester, a seeker, a pilgrim on his way to the new Jerusalem.
