Therefore, to what extent was Augustine’s City of God a motivator in Charlemagne’s desire to conquer Western Europe, and to what degree did Charlemagne understand Augustine’s theological intent in the political and/or magisterial use of compelling force to convert the unbeliever (and heterodox believer) to a life of Christian obedience? Was Augustine’s City of God a means to possibly justify an unfulfilled wish of his father’s, King Pepin III, and also to justify his own consistent devotion to the Church? Also, in the process of conquering the barbaric (“heathen”) and heterodox tribes of Western Europe, was it possible that Augustine’s work was misinterpreted by Charlemagne in another sense as well: Augustine’s belief that the disciplinary sword of the government was to be used only as a last resort in reforming the unregenerate? Charlemagne’s use of sheer, brute force to save Europe and to unify it for Christian ends perhaps represented the methodical nerve center in Charlemagne’s visionary quest for a Christian Empire.

Roman Catholic Saints! If you believe, like me, that the Roman Catholic Church established by Christ Himself is the most beautiful thing this side of heaven, then you also understand the importance of the lives of the saints. All throughout history the Church has produced great saints, proving that the Church is holy and able to provide us with what we need to reach sanctity. In reading the lives of the saints, we see that the saints each reflect, in a unique way, a special facet or virtue of God Himself. Learning about Catholic saints and their lives can inspire us to reach the summit of perfection that God wills for each of us.
