1:1–3 of God’s creation of the world in six days as well as the New Testament passage in 2 Pet. ’ D’Ailly maintained, therefore, that Augustine argued that world history would unfold according to a sixfold pattern with each period lasting a thousand years. Augustine, d’Ailly continues, identified the thousand years of Rev. 20:1–4 during which the dragon remained bound with the sixth age of the world, namely the period of the Church. At the end of this period, the dragon, representing the Antichrist, would be released.

Such knowledge, he argued, could be attained through a close reading of the Scriptures as well as through a detailed analysis of the contemporary experiences of the Church.
