HEROISM AND GENIUS
HOW CATHOLIC PRIESTS HELPED BUILD--AND CAN HELP REBUILD--WESTERN CIVILIZATION. Philosopher, theologian, Ignatian retreat master and author of this book Fr. William Slattery writes about some formidable men: Fathers of Western Culture, of free-enterprise economics, and of the institution of chivalry; leaders of nations, statesmen, and defiers of tyrants; music composers, pioneers of universal education, and architects of some of the world's loveliest buildings; and enigmatically, the clandestine revolutionaries whose aura still enchants the air of the West. Hardcover. 292 pages.
