From the coming of Jesus Christ, through the achievements of medieval Christendom, to the threshold of the Enlightenment projects of the 18th century, God’s work in history reveals itself. This book combines narrative accounts with the necessary facts, dates, short biographies, and concept definitions needed for a Christian cultural understanding.
The central concern of the volume is the effect on human civilization wrought by the Christian Faith. Drawing on the work of Catholic historians of the 20th century — Christopher Dawson, Hilaire Belloc, and Frederick Wilhelmsen — the authors have crafted a Catholic and accurate account of our Western heritage to convey our story to youth.
