On this week’s podcast, the bestselling historian Tom Holland talks to Andrew Brown about Holland’s new book Dominion: The making of the Western mind.
“This isn’t a history of Christianity,” Holland says. “It’s a history of what’s been revolutionary and transformative about Christianity: about how Christianity has transformed not just the West, but the entire world.
“People in the West, even those who may imagine that they have emancipated themselves from Christian belief, in fact, are shot through with Christian assumptions about almost everything.”
Holland’s previous books include Rubicon: The triumph and tragedy of the Roman Republic and Dynasty: The rise and fall of the house of Caesar.
Dominion: The making of the Western mind, is published by Little, Brown at £25 (CT Bookshop £22.50).
