Product Description

Religion and the Rise of Western Culture
by Christopher Dawson
242 pp. paperback

In this, his classic work, Christopher Dawson addresses two of the most pressing subjects of our day: the origin of Europe and the religious roots of Western culture.  In this book, Dawson tells the tale of medieval Christendom.  From the brave travels of 6th century Irish monks to the grand synthesis of Thomas Aquinas in the 13th century, Dawson brilliantly shows how vast spiritual movements arose from tiny origins and changed the face of medieval Europe from one century to the next.  The legacy of those years of ferment remains with us in the great cathedrals, Gregorian chant, and the works of Giotto and Dante.  Even more, though, for Dawson these centuries changed the soul of the West with a spiritual concern - a concern that he insisted "can never be entirely undone, except by the total negation or destruction of Western man himself."

Christopher Dawson (1889-1970) was one of the 20th century's great historians.  He has been called "unequaled as an historian of culture.  Unless we read him, we are uninformed."
