a book that posits a number of interesting historical reasons for the emergence of europe - particularly the gradual disengagement of Catholicism from extra-European christianity and the decentralization of religious power to the state - but never really succeeds in tying them all together. Consequently, it reads as a somewhat disjointed series of historical treatises on Christendom and Europe that lacks a coherent narrative or argument to it.
