The Mother of the City of Man

“Babylon, the great city, or Babylon the Great. The biggest in the world. No one can rival her, not even Rome. Not because of her historical greatness, but because of what she represents mythically. All the cities in the world are brought together in her, she is the synthesis of them all” (Ellul, The Meaning of the City, p. 20).
