Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

"The City Upon a Hill" was a sermon written by John Winthrop.  The allusion is the reference to the Puritans' view of themselves as a "city upon a hill".  The phrase is a reference to the prideful attitude of the Puritans.

Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
