Description

In How the Catholic Church Built Western Civilization, author Thomas Woods describes how and why the Catholic church gave Western Civilization some of its most integral and distinctive characteristics.

Ask someone today where Western Civilization originated, and he or she might say Greece or Rome. But what is the ultimate source of Western Civilization?

Bestselling author and professor Thomas E. Woods, Jr. provides the long neglected answer: the Catholic Church.

In How the Catholic Church Built Western Civilization, Woods goes far beyond the familiar tale of monks copying manuscripts and preserving the wisdom of classical antiquity.

Gifts such as modern science, free-market economics, art, music, and the idea of human rights come from the Catholic Church, explains Woods. No institution has done more to shape Western civilization than the two-thousand-year-old Catholic Church - and in ways that many of us have forgotten or never known.

How the Catholic Church Built Western Civilization is essential reading for recovering this lost truth.

    Lots of info

    This book is packed with excellent historical information. It's so packed that I know I didn't fully absorb it on my first read through and will probably read it again at some point.
