April 2, 2023 | The New Culture Forum
On April 2, 2023, Stanley Kurtz joined the New Culture Forum on their six episode series: The West. In this episode “The Christian Revolution,” they talked about “the influence of Christianity on the West, from its shocking arrival in Europe, to its encounter with Roman power and its adoption by the post-Roman barbarian world of the Franks and Saxons.”
“The importance of women in spreading the faith gets particular attention – from Saint Photina to Queen Bertha of Kent and the remarkable story of Bathilde, slave turned liberator. Christianity’s revolutionary doctrines emphasised individual choice in line with god-given reason, and a spirit of moral equality that raised up the low and the weak – transforming Western society.
