"City of God" VI.9

Chapter 9:
Augustine picks back up an issue he has touched on in an earlier book (sorry, I'm too lazy to link back). Namely, that it is ridiculous to assume that there are specific gods for specific events/actions/items in the world. Even if we look at it with the Mythical/Civil/Natural theological distinction in view, we see that it is an absurd theology to hold--Varro's attempts to shore up the Natural theology notwithstanding.
