Beginning with the transmission of Jesus' teaching throughout the Roman world, GR Evans shows how Christianity transformed not only the thinking but also the structures of society, in a Christendom that was, until relatively modern times, essentially a 'European' phenomenon. She traces Christianity's influence across the centuries, from its earliest days, through the East/West schism, the Reformation and Counter-Reformation, to its development in the scientific age of the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries and its place in the modern world. The narrative is complemented by boxed texts highlighting key events and concepts, such as monastic life, icons, Darwin's The Origin of Species, prophecy, the slave trade and the influence of psychology.G. R. Evans brings her expertise in the fields of medieval theology, ecumenism and intellectual history to create an engaging and accessible account of an important subject in European history. Beautifully illustrated with full-colour photographs, "The History of Christian Europe" will appeal to anyone seeking a fuller understanding of how Christianity helped to shape and define Europe and, consequently, the wider world.
