"As man amongst creatures, and the Church amongst men, and the Fathers in the Church, and S. Augustine amongst the Fathers, amongst the many pretious volumes, and in the rich store-house of his workes, his bookes of the City of God have a speciall preheminence. For Saint Augustine himselfe: He was a glorious light in his time, and one of the worthiest Champions that ever the Church had since the Apostles. For though he was but one of the foure Doctors of the Latine Church: yet fought he with foure of the fowlest heretikes, and cut off the heads of foure of the fowleft monsters that ever opprest the Church, namely the Arrians, the Manichees, the Denatists, and Pelagians, Such a Hercules was this holy Father that he feared not four together"--Book.
