Hanc [pacem populus alienatus Deo] autem ut interim habeat in hac vita, etiam nostri interest; quoniam, quamdiu permixtae sunt ambae civitates, utimur et nos pace Babylonis; ex qua ita per fidem populus Dei liberatur, ut apud hanc interim peregrinetur. (It is also in our interest that [the people alienated from God] meanwhile possess this peace in this life; for so long as both cities are intermixed, we also make use of the peace of Babylon; from Babylon the people of God is so liberated through its faith that it may for a while sojourn in its midst.) Augustine, De civ. Dev. 19.26
