Read full description of the books:
Read all five volumes of this history over the course of a year, thirty-five hundred some odd pages or so. One of the first histories that I have read outside the classroom after having finished my undergraduate work. Written from the Catholic perspective, the narrative is heavily political, emphasizing war or political leadership instead of social history or the history of ideas.
In addition to writing history, Carroll analyzed Soviet propaganda for the CIA and founded a college in Front Royal that I attended for a semester in graduate school. These texts largely led me there.
I suppose that I can say that I encountered the full scope of Western history for the first time through Carroll’s eyes. I was impressed when I read the series and still reference the text in my mind often when thinking of facts. Having read many other interpretations of history since, my one critique is that Carroll ignores significant parts of history in his ambitious desire to write a comprehensive master narrative from the Catholic point-of-view.
The first volume is the most interesting in my opinion. In the end, not many other histories like the Founding of Christendom exist that I have run across. Otherwise, I found the 2nd and the 5th volumes the slowest.
