Keywords: Aurelius Augustinus; politics; state; history;

Summary/Abstract: The author considers the question on Augustine’s concept of politics by interpreting the split of political reflection in the whole of Augustine’s philosophic and theological doctrine into a theoretic generalisation of a real-political experience and theologisation of that experience according to the customs of the genuine Paulin Christian doctrine on the one hand, and, on the other, according to requirements for the establishment of Christian church in the light of existing political and historical factors.
