Herorism and Genius: How Catholic Priests Helped Build - and Can Help Rebuild - Western Civilization by Fr. William J Slattery

This book examines how the Catholic Church - and especially the Priests that represent the church - helped to build western civilization as we know it. It contains numerous maps and illustrations that help to chart the path of Catholic priests and the development of western civilization.

The book is composed of three parts. The first part provides an overview of the the major milestones from 200 to 1300 AD and how recent historians have concluded the Church's role in shaping western civilization. The second part describes the shaping of medeival Christendom from the collapse of the Western Roman Empire. This includes the role of Saint Benedict and the work of Irish monks such as Columbanus. The third part aims to show how Catholic priests played a decisive role in establishing concepts such as chivalry, romanticism, and the free-market system.
