Description

Diarmaid MacCulloch charts the unpredictable rise of the Roman Catholic Church, exploring how a small Jewish sect that preached humility and the virtue of poverty in first-century Palestine became the powerful, established religion of Western Europe. He also reveals how confession was invented by monks on a remote island off the coast of Ireland, and how the Crusades gave Britain the university system
