Silly theology based on revisionist history, but mostly not fact based.
Essentially this is a book of fiction, trying to reconfigure history and distort facts to support a twisted premise of white Christian supremacy. The author purposely neglects any real economic history that doesn't fit his ugly perspective. Your first clue should be the author using the term 'so-called' to describe actual historical periods. Utter nonsense - not worth reading.

maggymaude, our friend naturalist has nothing original to write, hence the need for websites.

Some of the "facts" are pretty flimsy and easily disputed.

I notice you have rated quite a few books in this genre and rather than reviewing the content of the book, you post websites with seemingly opposing articles. Have you actually read any of the books that you are rating or are you just reading the synopsis and rating the book on that? I'm just curious.

Surprise, the Middle Ages were innovative rather than "dark."
