I interview Catherine Nixey about her new book The Darkening Age: The Christian Destruction of the Classical World, which explores how the early Christians, once they gained power, did everything they could to eliminate the architectural, artistic and literary heritage of the non-Christian Roman Empire.

Also recommend on the same subject matter: Bart Ehrman's The Triumph of Christianity.


More developments in what shouldn't be a controversy: attempts by Democratic House committee leaders to omit the phrase "so help you God" from the oath required of those testifying in hearings.
