Tom Holland

Religion & Revolution

Charting the extraordinary rise of Christianity, the single most transformative development in Western history, historian Tom Holland uncovers Christianity’s enduring impact on aspects of modern society which have been traditionally cast as its nemesis, such as science, secularism and even atheism. From the Persian invasion of Greece in 480 BC to the ongoing migration crisis in Europe today, from Nebuchadnezzar to the Beatles, what is it that made Christianity so revolutionary and disruptive? Why, in a West that has become increasingly doubtful of religion’s claims, do so many of its instincts remain irredeemably Christian? Join the conversation.
