The Founding of Christendom
- Paperback – 605 pages

The Warren Carroll book is a framework text. The information in the text is interesting, and makes a strong case for a Catholic point of view that is not always considered. It is important, however, that the text be supplemented by the extra readings. The strength of this course is found in the progression of the papers and in the conversation about the virtuous man, what virtue is, how a government should function and the relationship between virtue and government. The literature component is found in the substantial readings and the writing of position papers.
This series is the only comprehensive narration of Western history written from the orthodox Catholic perspective still in print. How would a historical narrative read if the author began with these first principles: Truth exists; the Incarnation happened? This series is essential reading for those who consider the West worth defending.
