9780500330012: The rise of Christian Europe

Hugh Trevor-Roper is a Europe-centric Historian. His book the rise of Christian Europe is all about how Europe and its neighbours, prospered, pillaged and lost lands. Roper discusses the different stages of European history from the fall of the Roman Empire, the rise of the Persian conquest, the coming to power of Islam, the Moslem attacks on Europe, crusades, medieval renaissance and finally the Americas. The book contains 124 illustrations which gives it a personal effect. This allows the reader to understand and connect better with the book. Roper brings an important point to the reader in the book, if the history of 'black Africa' and Asia have any real importance. He reason he points this out is because there is only history of Europeans in Africa and the history of Asia is too unclear to actually be history. Roper brings you through the stages of progress of European history. He talks about some of the great leaders of our past, Charlemagne, Pope Gregory, the great king of Byzantium Constantine, Philip Augustus, Richard the Lion, Justinian and Diocletian the great roman emperors. A good debating point that is given to the reader to indulge in is what was the significance of the crusades. Was it a major religious and heroic time for Christians to reclaim the holy land from the infidels, or was it a mere folly of great aristocrats to try and crave out new lands for themselves in the golden east? What effects did the crusades have on Europe? To conclude the rise of Christian Europe is a book bringing the reader through the stages of European history in all its glory and ill fortunes.
