The subtitle of Catherine Nixey's book is: "The Christian Destruction of the Classical World." It is a disturbing but necessary account of the first centuries of Christianity as a destructive force.

The history of the Roman Empire and early Middle Ages has usually been told through a Christian lens, from Augustine to Ben-Hur and beyond. Largely overlooked is the carnage and destruction caused by Christian fanaticism once this new religion had gained a footing in the Classical world, destroying “pagan” art, philosophy, and science—and contributing to what we call the Dark Ages. Catherine Nixey’s carefully researched and provocative work is an attempt to set the historical record straight, with implications also for our understanding of evangelical Christianity in the world today.
