Dominion: The Making of the Western MindPavilion Arts Centrebutton--dates-and-timesDates & Times

Critically acclaimed historian Tom Holland’s epic new book Dominion seeks to place the story of how Western Christianity came to be what it is, and how the Western mind thinks the way that it does, in the broadest historical context.

Ranging in time from the Persian invasion of Greece in 480 BC to the on-going migration crisis in Europe today, and from Nebuchadnezzar to the Beatles, it will explore just what it was that made Christianity so revolutionary and disruptive; how completely it came to saturate the mind-set of Latin Christendom; and why, in a West that has become increasingly doubtful of religion’s claims, so many of our instincts remain irredeemably Christian.
