The age of darkness is the little-known story of how a militant religion deliberately attacked and suppressed the teachings of the classical world, inaugurating centuries of unconditional adherence to the “one true faith”.Despite the notion for a long time that the early Christians were humble and gentle, went to the death of their martyrs to sing hymns of love and praise, the truth, as Catherine Nixey reveals, is very different.Far from being humble and gentle, they were violent, ruthless and fundamentally intolerant.Unlike the polytheistic world, in which the addition of a new religion made no fundamental difference to the “old”, this new ideology affirms not only that it was the way, the truth and the light, but that, by extension, every single otherwise would not go and should be dest royed.Dating from the 1st to the 6th, those who do not fall in line with his convictions have been prosecuted by all means: social, legal, financial and material.Turned up their destroyed altars and temples, their statues cut from pieces, and their priests killed.It’s an annihilation.Authoritative, very well written and quite convincing, this is a remarkable beginning for a brilliant young historian.
