« The Ascension | Main | A Response to AC Grayling, Part V: From 1003 to 1145 »

Bonjour Theresa,

That is certainly a very exhausting article about the building of the Chartres cathedral.

However, you do not give your personal opinion about the question "did Christianity start the "Dark Ages"?


Bonjour, Georg. My opinion about the question "did Christianity start the Dark Ages" is given in Parts I through III of the series. Christianity did not start the Dark Ages. Moreover, in Part IV, I gave my opinion that Christianity was actually instrumental in bringing Western Europe out of the Dark Ages during the time of rebuilding. In this Part V, I did not summarize all of that at the ending because I wanted to write here about building and endurance, despite the fires, and not about the decline.
