Mysteries of the Middle Ages: The Rise of Feminism, Science, and Art from the Cults of Catholic Europe
Thomas Cahill, the author of the best-selling books, How the Irish Saved Civilization, The Gifts of the Jews, and Sailing the Wine-Dark Sea: Why the Greeks Matter, takes another historical journey from ancient Alexandria to Rome. He examines how the push and pull between early Christian and Greco-Roman sensibilities gave rise to the building blocks of Western society, and explores how these values impact our socio-political and religious life today.
