How the Irish Saved Civilization
by Thomas Cahill
- CULTURAL PORTRAIT
- 236 PAGES
Subtitled "The untold story of Ireland's heroic role from the fall of Rome to the rise of medieval Europe," this national bestseller tells the generally unknown story of Ireland's preservation of classical learning in the Dark Ages. This island of saints and scholars, monks and scribes labored to reproduce important texts which spread as they evangelized Europe. This book is a very interesting look at this forgotten chapter in history.
