    The Rise of Christian Europe

    Hugh Trevor-Roper is a Europe-centric Historian. His book the rise of Christian Europe is all about how Europe and its neighbours, prospered, pillaged and lost lands. Roper discusses the different stages of European history from the fall of the Roman Empire, the rise of the Persian conquest, the coming to power of Islam, the Moslem attacks on Europe, crusades, medieval renaissance and finally the Americas. The book contains 124 illustrations which gives it a personal effect. This allows the reader to understand and connect better with the book. Roper brings an important point to the reader in the book, if the history of 'black Africa' and Asia have any real importance. He reason he points this out is because there is only history of Europeans in Africa and the history of Asia is too unclear to actually be history.
    Roper brings you through the stages of progress of European history. He talks about some of the great leaders of our past, Charlemagne, Pope Gregory, the great king of Byzantium Constantine, Philip Augustus, Richard the Lion, Justinian and Diocletian the great roman emperors. A good debating point that is given to the reader to indulge in is what was the significance of the crusades. Was it a major religious and heroic time for Christians to reclaim the holy land from the infidels, or was it a mere folly of great aristocrats to try and crave out new lands for themselves in the golden east? What effects did the crusades have on Europe? To conclude the rise of Christian Europe is a book bringing the reader through the stages of European history in all its glory and ill fortunes.

    One of the key strengths of this book is the fact that Roper is a Europe-centric historian. His strengths as a historian lay in European history. Ropers' concepts are well defined in his book. He brings points to life such as some of the underlying significance of the crusades. Due to the geographical position the 'cities of Italy were enlivened by the touch of the golden east' H.T. Roper. The rise of Christian Europe (London; Thames and Hudson, 1965), pp. 125. This in turn had re-awoken the rest of the European cities. This book also shows us good usage of illustration it has 124 throughout the book and each one is on the subject that reader is reading at the time. The arguments the Roper puts forward such as the implications of the fall of the Roman Empire, crusades and the importance of the discovery of the Americas. This draws the reader into the context of the book and makes them debate with themselves if they agree or disagree with the arguments. The majority of the time I found myself agreeing with what Roper was trying to portray. Another feature that I find strong about this book is the conclusion; I find it convincing in the manner that it explains all of the previous information of the book. Roper claims many discontinuities occurred, such as the fall of the Roman Empire, Arab conquest of Middle East and 'even Persia under that impact of Arabic civilization became arabized' H.T. Roper. The rise of Christian Europe (London; Thames and Hudson, 1965), pp. 125. What I think Roper is trying to say here is that these discontinuities were not in a sense a disaster, they were merely the ending of 1 civilization to allow another to come to power, which is the way of life.

    What I feel is one of the biggest weaknesses of this book is it left out one of the most important factors of the time. Religion! I no Roper talks ab
