“Every chancellery in Europe, every court in Europe, has been judged by these learned, trained and accomplished men of the priesthood of the great and the dominant body.With stubborn facts, historians have given their verdict: from the culture of the Jews, Greeks, Romans, Arabs and Germanic peoples, the Catholic Church has built a new and original civilization, which incarnate within its structures, the Christian vision of God and man, time and eternity “.The construction and maintenance of Western civilization, amidst the attrition and cultural attrition of earthquakes, is a saga of the spread of more than sixteen hundred years.During this period, Catholic priests, because they were so many men of heroism and genius in their ranks, and also because of their leadership positions, became pioneers and irreplaceable builders of Christian culture and socio-political order.Heroism and Genius presents some of these formidable men: the fathers of chivalry and free enterprise in the economy; statesmen and tyrants defeated; composers, educators, and architects of some of the most beautiful buildings; and, paradoxically, revolutionary defenders of romantic love.
