The City and the Pilgrim
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.
