An Ecclesiastical History, Ancient and Modern, Volume 2
They alleged, that, before the coming of Christ, the world was blessed with peace and prosperity; but that, since the progress of his religion every where, the gods, filled with indignation to see their worship negleaed and their altars abandoned, had visited the earth with those plagues and desolations, which increased every day. This feeble objection was en tirely removed by Augustin, in his book (16 Civitate Dci a work exceedingly rich and ample irttupoint of matter, and filled with the most profound a diver sified erudition. It also drew a complete confutation from the learned pen of Orosius, who, in a history written expressly for that purpose, shewed, with the strongest evidence, that not only the same calamities now complained oil but also plagues of a much more dreadful kind, had af´Čéicted mankind before the Christian religion appeared in the world.

Read on your PC, Mac, smart phone, tablet or Kindle device. ★★★ The world we know now won't be what it is if not for the past. The past shaped the present and will shape the future. Most of these historical events will forever be engrained in the minds of humankind. World War II, the assassination of JFK, the 911 terrorist act, and the resulting War on Terror are just a few of such events many will remember as the ones that changed the course of history. But not all enjoy the notoriety of those mentioned. In this book, there are some important historical events that have been forgotten or remained obscure. Did you know that Genghis Khan had children? Genghis Khan, originally named Temujin, married Borte when he was sixteen though their marriage had been arranged since he was only nine years of age. Temujin and Borte had four children: Jochi, Chagatai, Ogedei, and Tolui. The death of Ogedei Khan greatly affected the course of history. If he lived a little longer, the Mongols could have pushed much further into Europe. Around the time of Ogedei's demise, Austria was already developing the basic concepts of modern banking and capitalism. If the Mongols invaded Austria, they could have prevented such economic concepts from coming into fruition. Also, have you heard of Percy Lavon Julian? His name is not a popular name among normal folks but those who know what he really means to the field of medicine is surely grateful. Julian is the inventor of steroids. While some of you may think that he's the guy behind all those cheating athletes, you might want to check your medicine cabinet first. Steroid is an ingredient of many medicinal drugs such as those used to treat asthma, allergies, arthritis, eczema, hemorrhoids, and even cancer. These true stories could have been lost in the past forever but thanks t
