Inhaltsangabe

In The Darkening Age, Catherine Nixey tells the little-known - and deeply shocking - story of how a militant religion deliberately tried to extinguish the teachings of the Classical world, ushering in unquestioning adherence to the 'one true faith'.

The Roman Empire had been generous in embracing and absorbing new creeds. But with the coming of Christianity, everything changed. This new faith, despite preaching peace, was violent, ruthless and intolerant. And once it became the religion of empire, its zealous adherents set about the destruction of the old gods. Their altars were upturned, their temples demolished and their statues hacked to pieces. Books, including great works of philosophy and science, were consigned to the pyre. It was an annihilation.

Sehr einseitig geschriebene Darstellung

Konterpositioin zu den Geschichten die einem die Pfarrer in der Kindheit erzählt haben und Fragen aufgeworfen haben und natürlich! Nicht von diesen beantwortet werden konnte.
Mit Unterhaltungswert & wild Umstritten:

From the not editable guardian:

"An exceptional account of murder and vandalism wrought by religious zealotry – and one that suggests modern parallels"

Tim Whitmarsh


From the editable wikipedia:

Averil Cameron, professor emerita of Late Antique and Byzantine History at the University of Oxford, points out that Nixey is promoting some outdated teachings and finds Nixey's book without nuance and counter-arguments, and states that Nixey's readers would never know that there are academic works that contradict her narrative if they only get their information from her. On Twitter Cameron called Nixey's book ”a travesty”.
