The Annotated Quotable Dawson

by John Gay

Christopher Dawson, the greatest Catholic historian of the twentieth century, remains the final authority on the relation between religion and culture and is one of the most original thinkers of the modern era.

The Annotated Quotable Dawson is a gateway to his work, offering the reader a glimpse of the astonishing breadth and depth of his learning and wisdom. Dawson’s comments on a wide range of subjects confirm Frank Sheed’s opinion that while Dawson had not read everything, there was nothing it was safe to assume he had not read.

Footnotes from the writings of Dawson’s contemporaries, G.K. Chesterton and Hilaire Belloc, provide further insight and perspective on matters of enduring importance to any reader with a concern for the past and future of humanity.
