"City of God" XVIII.16-18

Chapter 16-18:
Even war grows the pagan delusion concerning the gods, as we see in the Trojan War and its aftermath where people are elevated to the divine, and lowered to the beasts almost indiscriminately. And we shouldn't necessarily dismiss these as pure fancy--after all, God can do what He wishes with the human form, including delegating to demons the ability to deceive our senses to lead us further astray. That we do not see these things and turn instead to Him is just a further sign of the depths of our depravity.
