4.0 out of 5 stars Useful and interesting
By Ana in Michigan on January 19, 2019
I’m finding this book both helpful and interesting. Not a comprehensive text, of course.
Found a couple mistakes: Saint Jerome did not translate the Bible from Hebrew but mostly from Greek. And we don’t use the Julian calendar, but the revised Julian by St Gregory the Great—the Gregorian one.
