About this title

Synopsis:

This book tells the secret story of the conflict between Greeks and Christians in late antiquity, especially from the fourth to the sixth centuries. It reveals how Christianity, assisted and funded by the Roman Empire, conspired to kill the Greeks whom it had dehumanized, branding them idolaters and pagans. Christianity s genocidal policies against the Greeks and their civilization almost succeeded; the "converted" Greeks were forced to abandon even their name and call themselves Romans from the fifth to the nineteenth centuries. Moreover, the Christianization of Greece was a catastrophe that precipitated the fall of Rome and engendered the dark ages of Western civilization. The Christians made Greece a cemetery, which quite unintentionally preserved the aftermath of their murder and genocide. At a time of religious conflict between Christianity and Islam, this book highlights the intolerant nature of monotheism. It tells a story never told before, opening the possibility we may get closer to the Greeks, understanding their passion and their achievements. The Greeks resisted Christianity for centuries. Like god Prometheus who gave them fire and the arts, so did the Greeks create our world through the Renaissance, which brought to light the remnants of Greek culture long ago buried by Christianity. Illustrated with two maps of Ancient Greece in color. Designed, printed, and bound in the USA.

About the Author:

E.G. Vallianatos holds a doctorate in history from the University of Wisconsin. The Academy of Athens published his doctoral thesis, From Graikos to Hellene, in 1987. He is also the author of three books on agrarian issues; Fear in the Countryside (1976), Harvest of Devastation (1994) and This Land is Their Land: How Corporate Farms Threaten the World (2006). Vallianatos is a passionate scholar of Ancient Hellenic culture (philosophy, poetry, drama and theater, literature, history, science, art, and religion). He believes that Hellenic philosophy s unfettered search for the truth and the Hellenes respect for nature are more relevant now than ever in our perilous modern times. It is his contention that this bedrock legacy of civilization is absolutely essential for the preservation and protection of Western culture and the continuing search for a peaceful, democratic, ecological and sustainable world.
