Did you note that she is the offspring of
a nun and a monk who were having sex?

How is that relevant to anything?

I bet there are many more children from such relationships that you might imagine.

As a relevant factor to her early culture and what has shaped her bias.

Andrew quote-mining clod that he is leaves out the key
phrase "ex-."

How C Nixey's parents met here:

https://www.thetimes.co.uk/article/my-parents-the-nun-and-the-monk-389rsqwpkkh

[free registration required.]

And, Androol, are you a strict, traditional Catholic, now, who thinks
people who take religious orders may never return to a lay life?
Protestant and Orthodox clergy marry. Do you sneer at them?
Martin Luther was an ex-Catholic priest who married an ex-nun.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Martin_Luther#Marriage


There's no mention of pre-marital sex in the Times article.

It does end with this note:

[quote]

I also say that, at some point, the religion petered out. That we didn’t
go to church any more. That, imperceptibly, everyone stopped believing.
And I say that, when my mother died unexpectedly five years ago, and my
father’s oldest friend from the monastery put his arm around him at her
funeral and said “You will see her again”, my father didn’t believe a word
of it. And neither did I.

[/quote]

So, win-win-win for the Nixeys. Two people rescued themselves
from the grip of belief, found love and raised a family.

Nothing to say, Andrew, about the wrecking of rival religions'
sanctuaries statuary etc? Hypatia's murder by the parabalani?
All just "doing the Lord's work?"

Nothing about love, nothing a family, just the old "sex is a monster
that must be kept in its cage" meme.

Note that plenty of married Christians do all sorts of outside-
the-marriage fornicating.

*trembling*

And, did your god indicate what sort of punishments might befall a fornicator or adulterer? Not for me of course. Oh no! But you see, i have a close friend who _may_ have committed both of these transgressions, and, you see... i'm just wondering what terrible fate might befall him. He's a close friend, and i worry about him

PS: It's not me.

PPS: His name is "John Rickson".

PPPS: He's really sorry, too.

Yes, he did.

4 Marriage should be honored by all, and the marriage bed kept pure, for God
will judge the adulterer and all the sexually immoral.

one time a doctor saved up all the foreskins he could collect ,
he took them to a taxidermist and said see if you can make me ,
something useful with these , about a week later he went ,
back to the taxidermy to see what he had made and it was ,
a tiny little change purse and the doctor said ,
this is all you could make with all those foreskins ,
the taxidermist said yea a change purse , but ,
if you rub it a bit it turns into an 8 piece luggage set

Oh, she was not the progeny of two godless atheists? I'm shocked, Andrew, truly shocked!

Your "who were having sex..." is completely superfluous. Unless it titillates you, Andrew. This copulation subject seems to excite you, as it does many here, who might be said to be on your side.

Did you think the pregnancy resulted from a game of checkers the two played?

I'm sure the book has some interest but probably only for those either specializing in the late classical age or those specializing in hate for Christianity like Kev.

Not to justify it, but desecration of inscriptions and images goes back thousands of years. It was a way of controlling history to break up busts of your rivals and scratch away their names from monuments.

I like Bettany Hughes a lot and have read all her books, including her latest about one of my favorite cities, Istanbul. However, she does sometimes stub her toe stepping over PC topics.

For sure, we cannot expect a similar book to be written about how Islam also helped destroy the Classical world nor would I expect Hughes to review it.

In our world, it could result in dangerous threats being made against author, publisher and reviewer to say nothing of accusations in the UK of Islamophobia and legal action.

For Christians, there'll be nothing more than a shrug of the shoulders because of this book.

We only have to read news articles about the Taliban
dynamiting Buddhist statues in Afghanistan, before the
post 9-11 invasion.

OR, similar cutural vandalism by ISIL.

In our world, it could result in dangerous threats being made against author, publisher and reviewer to say nothing of accusations in the UK of Islamophobia and legal action.
The UK has many fine points. Its attitude toward free speech in cases
like the one you posit is not admirable.

For Christians, there'll be nothing more than a shrug of the shoulders because of this book.

THE DARKENING AGE
The Christian Destruction of the Classical World
By Catherine Nixey
Illustrated. 315 pp.
Houghton Mifflin Harcourt.
https://www.nytimes.com/2018/06/08/books/review/catherine-nixey-darkening-age.html
How Christians Destroyed the Ancient World
FYI.
Kevin R
I'm sure the book has some interest but probably only for those either specializing in the late classical age or those specializing in hate for Christianity like Kev.
Not to justify it, but desecration of inscriptions and images goes back thousands of years. It was a way of controlling history to break up busts of your rivals and scratch away their names from monuments.
I like Bettany Hughes a lot and have read all her books, including her latest about one of my favorite cities, Istanbul. However, she does sometimes stub her toe stepping over PC topics.
For sure, we cannot expect a similar book to be written about how Islam also helped destroy the Classical world nor would I expect Hughes to review it.
We only have to read news articles about the Taliban
dynamiting Buddhist statues in Afghanistan, before the
post 9-11 invasion.

OR, similar cutural vandalism by ISIL.

Islam can be easily converted into Hebraic Christianity just like you convert your car If you know which button to press.
That said, Islam dealt with polytheism is the Orient while Catholicism - not papal Catholicism- dealt with the imperial cult and other form of idolatry in the West.
Therefore your question shows a misunderstanding of the line of demarcation

Lots of ways but you can start with the destruction of the Eastern Roman Empire in 1453 by the Ottomans.

Yeah, and the assassination of the archduke, the Battle of the Somme, the Russian revolution, the rise of fascism and the reign of atheist mass murderers in the mid-20th century.
