The latest creation of a well-known in Russia Italian journalist Corrado Augias is devoted to the thoughtful study of the first four centuries of the establishment of Christianity as religion, politics, dialectics and lifestyle. The author's criticism is akin to the Gospel, “Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be filled”. Remo Cacitti, a professor of ancient Christian literature, who is like Virgil with Dante, helps him in this quest.

 

Despite the abundance of quotations, old documents and historical references to the characters, infinitely far from our time, the book is read in a breathless rush, because it is built in the form of investigative journalist interview. And if you're curious to trace the evolution that took Christianity from its dawn apostolic pores to the Edict of Milan – then the story will surprise you with many discoveries from the Catholic sex-phobia causes and origins of heresy before the creation of the canon and the vocation to martyrdom.
