Jesus Christ and Civilization  

by Lyndon H. LaRouche, Jr.

“The internal problems of modern Christianity, are among the sensitive issues which must be addressed here,” writes Lyndon H. LaRouche, Jr. “... Taken as a whole, the recent 2,500 years of rise of that adopted child of Egypt, that the birth and development of the now globally extended European civilization, is to be understood in terms of the three greatest bench-marks of its entire history: the consolidation of the development of Classical Greek culture around the leading figure of Plato, the ministry and crucifixion of Jesus Christ, and the Golden Renaissance. Without those three revolutionary steps forward, Europe and its civilization had neither come into existence, nor would have acquired the dominant significance in the planet which it has attained since the great, mid-Fifteenth-Century, ecumenical Council of Florence.”
