My first book by Toynbee, but it won t be my last Interestingly, Toynbee starts out with a quotes from Antigone Wonders are many, but none there be So strange, so fell, as the Child of Man and the gospels of Matthew iv 10 and Luke iv 8 Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and Him only shalt thou serve I wondered about this, until the end, where he shows Christianity reanimating an exhausted Hellinism which, despite its brilliance, in the end, without God, is a form of idolatry I enjoyed the the [...]







    3. This is typical, broad ranging Toynbee a very general survey of the culture of hellenism from prehistory until its breakup into Islam, and Roman and Byzantine Christianity.



    4. L umanesimo non certo il mio campo, e le mie letture lo confermano, ma ricordo di essermi sentito cos illuminato sulle origini della cultura e delle religioni dopo questo libro da ricordarlo sempre con affetto Consigliato per i non addetti eppur umilmente curiosi
