This is Part 2 of Bill’s interview with best-selling author and historian Thomas Cahill. Watch Part 1.
Bill continues his conversation with Thomas Cahill to talk about the role of religion in our lives, the rediscoveries of the classics during the Renaissance and Reformation, as well as the ascendance of Christopher Columbus.
“The discovery of America touches off new ways of thinking in Europe, and especially new kinds of theology – ‘Is God completely different from who we thought he was?’ -- if the world is actually like this.” Cahill tells Bill.
Cahill has written a series of best-selling books about critical moments in Western civilization; his latest is Heretics and Heroes: How Renaissance Artists and Reformation Priests Created Our World.
