"City of God" XVIII.13-15

Chapter 13:
As the Jews were ruled by Judges, and either being punished by God for their sins or blessed according to His compassion and mercy, the pagans created increasingly bizarre myths about their gods, drawing ever farther from the truth and ever more into the city of man.

Chapter 14-15:
Even elevating the Greek myths to theological poetry (such as that or Orpheus) does nothing to help advance the cause of truth, however pleasing the poetry may be. Good art about a bad subject does no one any good.
