A sequel to "The Death of Christian Culture", this spiritual treatise covers social, cultural, and political topics.
It explores the importance of religious knowledge and faith to the health of a culture, provides a historical sketch of the change in cultural and educational standards over the last two centuries, and illustrates how literary and other visual arts either contribute to a culture or conspire to tear it down.
Compared to a series of sermons, this analysis explains that there is a continuing extinction of the cultural patrimony of ancient Greece, Rome, medieval Europe, and the early modern period of Western civilisation, owing to the pervasive bureaucratisation, mechanisation, and standardisation of increasing materialism.
