Description
Information
Silence is at the heart of the history of Christianity. Some silences are holy, some skirt the borders of evil: besides prayer and mystical contemplation, there is shame and evasion, even purposeful forgetting. In this daring and moving history, Diarmaid MacCulloch draws us into a polyphony of silences from the whole span of Christianity and beyond, from ancient Jewish and Greek beginnings to Jesus' ministry, from the monastic movement to the eruption of the Reformation, and on to more troubling silences.

Silence shows the history of Christianity in a fresh and fascinating new light.
