"Saint Augustine seized the psalter, and his stroke of genius was to discover in it a fundamental idea, a single, but ramified, social, universal idea.
Through the diversity of all the centuries a single man, of head and limbs, appears and builds himself up, Jesus Christ aggregates one by one the predestined ones to his mystical body; but this construct, this progress is only made in the midst of the atrocious reactions of the wicked. So much so that the law of religious history consists of this simultaneous composition and discrimination, gradually removing the city of God from the city of evil."
