Saints  free pdf "Eminently readable as well as being a work of tremendous erudition and scholarship." - Rt. Rev. Arild Strmsvg, Ph.D. This unique look at history elaborately recounts the birth of human civilization through the vehicle of ancient Egyptian deities, albeit in light of the most recent knowledge on arch]ology, anthropology, comparative religion, linguistics, sociology, and general history. It moves quickly but seamlessly to Greece via Crete, revealing the relatively young age of Continental European (and by extension, all Western) culture, science, art, and religion, and their highly derivative nature-a point subtly repeated throughout this stunningly wide-ranging work. It does not, however, presume to pass judgement, only to relate the events as they happened, the facts as they stand, even if many of them are little known ones, conspicuous by their absence in standard school history books. A book of contrasts, it constantly compares not only the Saints and the Sinners, but the East and the West, be the issues dealt with political or religious- in most cases, the one cannot be separated from the other. "The literary style throughout is plain and lucid, with a proper attention paid to especially important and colourful episodes. It is a remarkable achievement of concision and narration." - Ronald Hutton, Professor of History, University of Bristol Antti P. Balk is a Finnish author and an expert on world history and comparative religion. He is currently working on his second English title, Balderdash: A Treatise on Ethics. "His conclusion, that democracy is a more dangerous form of government than monarchy..." - Reference
