Publisher's Summary

Hilaire Belloc examines the five most destructive heretical movements to have affected Christian civilization: Arianism, Mohammedanism (Islam), Albigensianism (Cathar), the Reformation (Protestant), and the modern phase. Belloc describes how these movements began, how they spread, and how they continued to influence the world up until the time of his writing (1936). The chapter on Islam is especially relevant today; in it Belloc accurately predicts the renewal of jihadist aggression towards western civilization.

    "Classic and timeless"

    This book describes with important facts and details the five main Christian heresies, a classic piece of Church history. It is timeless because even if it was written in 1930's, it still valid for our days.
    I highly recommend those chapters that talk about Islam and Modernism.

    Story
    "An important angle at which to view western history"

    Mr. Belloc shows his mastery of history showing a much neglected view of history, that is to say, the catholic view. Without an understanding of this world view, one cannot pretend to understand the history of western thought.
    Although fairly dated Belloc's assumptions stand the test of time and remain eerily prophetic.

    Story
    "So prescient about now and clear about then"

    The last sections on modern circumstances is amazingly spot on for today despite the number of decades since its writing. The review of historical heresies iis excellent also.
