Pro-Catholic without supporting facts
I bought this book on the strength of his book about how the Irish Saved Civilization. I should have looked past the fine illistrations and possibly more at the content. I wanted to see how an openly Pro-Catholic writer could possibly soften or even condone the horrific sins of the Inquisition driven Catholic Church, and in that prospect I was disappointed. The point of this book was to be a fresh look at a period of history where texts often claim that the era was lacking in most of the virtues found before and after the period. The book further suffered from mixed writing, from that of scholars to that of a chatty visitor lecturing a Sunday school class. This book could not be further from the sound rational writing found in the earlier book.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
