Two ways of seeing the world within the Christian tradition-two minds-run like sometimes distinct, sometimes intertwining threads through this survey of Western civilization. Sherrard writes here as an historian of ideas who takes theology seriously; the course of events is never merely a matter of historical accident, but is fundamentally formed by the theological impact of diverging Greek and Latin metaphysical convictions. The connections Sherrard posits between intellectual trends and historical events are occasionally tendentious, but more often provocative and fertile, leading the reader to look at historical developments in new ways. His analyses of scholasticism, the intellectual roots of the Renaissance, and the inroads of secularism in modern Greek history are especially valuable. 212 pp.
