Buen repaso de la historia alrededor del Mediterraneo (y un poquito más allá) en los dos siglos alrededor del milenio. Bien escrito con ese humor irónico propio de los ingleses ( )

This book takes a look at European History from about 800 - 1200AD. The subject is interesting, the writing style somewhat flowery, but personable and understandable. This book makes a good introductory, and not too detailed, text to the time period. The book includes the useful addition of maps and a timeline. ( )

Millennium covers a largely unfamiliar piece of history for me - the +/- 200 years from 1000AD. It was a time when people were reading their Bibles (actually the reading was being done for them) and expecting the return of Jesus and the end of the world. It was a dreadful time to be sure, but it appears that many ignored the advice of Augustine that the time of the return could not be predicted.
Tom Holland writes history not as a collection of facts, but as an essay, interpreting and illustrating as he goes along. My problem (and it's mine) is that it does not suit my reading style - the sentences are quite long, and I appear to have the attention span of a gnat. ( )

This is a book about the period of approximately 200 years on both sides of the first millennium AD and about the evolving relationship between the pope and various kings and princes in Western Europe, chiefly the Germanic Holy Roman Emperors and the shifting influence and importance of the Roman church. It was informative and well-written and kept me engaged all the way through. ( )

Didn't enjoy it as much as Persian Fire, but a satisfying read on a period I didn't know much about. ( )

" In "The Forge of Christendom," Tom Holland (whose last book, "Rubicon," traced the end of the Roman Republic) provides an entertaining account of the fraught last years of the Dark Ages, when a confused and suffering Europe contemplated the End of Days and yet, much to its surprise, woke up on New Year's Day 1000 to a brighter future than it could have imagined."
