    The Catholic Church gets a lot of credit in this book by a protestant. Title-How the Catholic Church Built Western Civilization. Below is a description from the back page of the book. Research this and see for yourself what is true.

    Ask someone today where Western Civilization originated, and he or she might say Greece or Rome. But what is the ultimate source of Western Civilization? Bestselling author and professor Thomas E. Woods, Jr. provides the long neglected answer: the Catholic Church. In the new paperback edition of his critically-acclaimed book, How the Catholic Church Built Western Civilization, Woods goes far beyond the familiar tale of monks copying manuscripts and preserving the wisdom of classical antiquity. Gifts such as modern science, free-market economics, art, music, and the idea of human rights come from the Catholic Church, explains Woods. In How the Catholic Church Built Western Civilization, you’ll learn:

    • Why modern science was born in the Catholic Church
    • How Catholic priests developed the idea of free-market economics five hundred years before Adam Smith
    • How the Catholic Church invented the university
    • Why what you know about the Galileo affair is wrong
    • How Western law grew out of Church canon law
    • How the Church humanized the West by insisting on the sacredness of all human life

    No institution has done more to shape Western civilization than the two-thousand-year-old Catholic Church—and in ways that many of us have forgotten or never known. How the Catholic Church Built Western Civilization is essential reading for recovering this lost truth.

    The Catholic church had way more influence than today. Not sure about it "building" western civilization, but I'd say that they did have a saying in pretty much everything.

    Love this quote from the current Pope: "When the Church is self-referential, inadvertently, she believes that she has her own light." He goes on to say that this is the "worst evil" that could befall the church.

    I know a certain Governing Body that could stand to take a lesson from the Pope!

    But the author needs to research what Islam has preserved too - mathematics, science, democracy etc.
