How did Christianity come to have such an extraordinary influence upon Europe?

Beginning with the transmission of Jesus – teaching throughout the Roman world, Gillian 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 History of Christian Europe will appeal to scholars of religion and history who are seeking a fuller understanding of how Christianity helped shape and define Europe and, consequently, the wider world.

Reviews for The History of Christian Europe

"Where other books might fail in attempting to cover so much ground, this book succeeds wonderfully in narrating the history of Christianity in Europe in a coherent and exciting manner. It is a pleasure to read."
