      EVENT DETAILS
      Tom Holland - Festival of Ideas at Waterstones

      Tom Hollandplaces the story of how we came to be what we are, and how we think the way that we do, in the broadest historical context. Ranging in time from the Persian invasion of Greece in 480 BC to the on-going migration crisis in Europe today, and from Nebuchadnezzar to the Beatles, he explores just what it was that made Christianity so revolutionary and disruptive; how completely it came to saturate the mind-set of Latin Christendom; and why, in a West that has become increasingly doubtful of religions claims, so many of its instincts remain irredeemably Christian. Whether you are atheist, agnostic or believer in any faith,Hollands argument could hardly be more topical.This is an event in partnership with Bristol Festival of Ideas
