    In The Darkening Age, Catherine Nixey tells the little-known - and deeply shocking - story of how a militant religion deliberately tried to extinguish the teachings of the Classical world, ushering in unquestioning adherence to the 'one true faith'. The Roman Empire had been generous in embracing and absorbing new creeds. But with the coming of Christianity, everything changed. This new faith, despite preaching peace, was violent, ruthless and intolerant. And once it became the religion of empire, its zealous adherents set about the destruction of the old gods.

    La edad de la penumbra es la historia, en gran parte desconocida, de cómo una religión militante sometió y aniquiló deliberadamente las enseñanzas del mundo clásico, lo que abrió paso a siglos de adhesión incondicional a «una sola fe verdadera». El Imperio romano se había mostrado generoso acogiendo nuevas creencias, pero la llegada del cristianismo lo cambió todo. Esta nueva religión, pese a predicar la paz, era violenta, despiadada y decididamente intolerante.
