What I’m Reading: The Darkening Age

For those interested in reading along with me, I’ve just started Catherine Nixey’s The Darkening Age: The Christian Destruction of the Classical World. I’ll likely discuss it in some detail during a future podcast, so if you want to add your thoughts here, please feel free.

Apparently Christians didn’t just take over the Roman empire; they destroyed its cultural essence as well. According to the publisher, this book is “a bold new history of the rise of Christianity, showing how its radical followers ravaged vast swathes of classical culture, plunging the world into an era of dogma and intellectual darkness.”
