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.
