Jim Papandrea explains how the Catholic Church saved civilization.


How Christianity Saved Civilization

We’ve looked before at the “world’s debt to the Catholic Church,” the ways in which Catholicism changed culture for the better and helped advance human flourishing. Jim Papandrea gives us a look at different “revolutions,” started by Christians, that helped save civilization.

Jim Papandrea is a Catholic teacher, author, speaker, and musician. He’s the author of several books, most recently How Christianity Saved Civilization: And Must Do So Again, which he co-authored with Mike Aquilina. He was baptized Catholic, but raised in the Lutheran denomination and reverted back to the Catholic Church through his studies of the Church fathers. Jim is currently Associate Professor of Church History at Garrett-Evangelical Seminary at Northwestern University.
