    Nixey s pop history purports to present some kind of new perspective on the transition from the pagan Roman world to the dominance of Christianity, but all we get is dusty old Edward Gibbon rehashed for the post Dawkins Hitchens age In the hands of skilled historian this could have been an interesting book one which explains a fascinating period and an interesting subject A balanced and objective scholar could

    Hypatia, circa 350 370 CE to 415 CE, Philosopher, astronomer, and mathematician of Alexandria Knowing what I already knew about the destruction of the great Library of Alexandria and the torture and murder of the brilliant philosopher and mathematician Hypatia, I knew the early Christians weren t exactly kind to those who didn t believe as they did I knew there was much they destroyed of the ancient world, much tha

    I notice many reviews of this book tend to the extremes either rating it very highly or very negatively, I feel by way of contrast that it is a very middle of the road kind of book, ok, but it pulls it s punches.The title effectively sums up the book, the author is a journalist and maybe that is the kind of neat trick that she has picked up from her professional practise.Putting words into her mouth, the story she tells

    I love to read negative reviews of books I m interested in Sometimes they convince me I must read a book,than any positive review probably will However, after reading several theological negative reviews that didn t say Christians weren t really this bad they were still written by theological historians or students of theology and history, I turned to finding one written by an atheist I warn you, it s a long review, but Tim

    It is said that ABSOLUTE POWER CORRUPTS Hence the post Roman era is typically called as the Dark ages, since it was the period when Christianity held absolute power, which resulted in widespread destruction and corruption of everything that it touched However, what was it like when Christianity was struggling to acquire power What effect did it have during that time These are the questions that Catherine Nixey s new book titled T

    It is so good to read a scholarly book that presents the monotheistic destruction of the classical world accurately as religious and cultural genocide though she s not quite so blunt This is an excellent book challenging all too often unquestioned ideas of christianity in general and monotheism in particular as inevitable and most especially as progress I highly recommend it.

    I almost didn t read this book after reading all of the negative reviews accusations of poor scholarship, personal biases, a vendetta against Christianity She certainly has her opinions that she supports with quotes from her sources I did my own fact checking, and didn t find all of the distortions of which they accuse her.Rather than write my own review, I thought it would be apropos to present somefavorable reviews that others have presented

    Yes, I would like to go back in time and wreak destruction on the barbaric Christians who gloated in the destruction of the Temple of Artemis and send lightning bolts to strike them down Temple destroyers Murderers of Hypatia Book burners In the wake of such senseless destruction, no real triumph is possible I m afraid that Christianity spread the same way as the other monotheistic religions following it through force and coercion Nevertheless, it i
