The Revolution Against Christendom: A History of Christendom, volume 5
By Warren H. Carroll
The Revolution Against Christendom, from 1661-1815, is the fifth volume in “The History of Christendom” series. This series is the only in-print, comprehensive narration of Western history written from an orthodox Catholic perspective. How would a historical narrative read if the author began with the first principles that truth exists and the Incarnation happened?
This volume begins during the reign of Louis XIV and France’s rise to European supremacy after the Sun King’s confident supplanting of his Cardinal minsters, Richelieau and Mazarin. It ends with the shattering of Napoleon’s forces at Waterloo, a defeat that was, as Carroll states, “the result of the kind of alliance that only God could make.” The volume chronicles the misfortunes and disintegration of the Catholic monarchies of Europe in the face of new, hostile ideologies. Standing against the spirit of revolution, the spirit of Hell itself, was the Church and the inspiring, though often tragic, figures of Christendom: heroes such as King John Sobieski of Poland, Bonnie Prince Charlie, Marie Antoinette, Jacques Cathenlineau, even Georges-Jacques Danton, whose repudiation of the Terror of the French Revolution and return to the Church has, until now, been an event ignored in standard histories of the period.

Building Something Beautiful For God –
To Last A Thousand Years
Our Lady of Clear Creek Abbey is a Benedictine community belonging to the Solesmes Congregation and, like other monasteries of the Solesmes Congregation, is to be counted among the institutes entirely ordered towards contemplation. It was founded in 1999 from the Abbey of Our Lady of Fontgombault in France and is located in the Diocese of Tulsa, Oklahoma. Clear Creek became an abbey in 2010 and counts 55 monks, who devote themselves to God alone in the hidden life, in silence and solitude, in constant prayer and willing penance.
After twenty years of existence, we are happy, by the grace of God, to have completed two large buildings and a sizable portion of our abbatial church. We completed the “Chapter House” in 2023 to accommodate the growing number of monks and provide a Sacristy, Infirmary, classrooms and the Chapter itself. Please help us continue this arduous, but important work for the glory of God.
