"City of God" VIII.14-15

Chapter 14:
Plato likewise held a view of rational beings that included demons--albeit an inconsistent one that raised these demons to the level of gods and treated them with unbecoming respect.

Chapter 15:
We can't even say that demons are better than us just because they are spiritual beings--if that were the case, there are any number of animals that would be better than us simply because their senses are more acute. This is simply a false method of classification.
