How the Irish Saved Civilization

By Cahill, Thomas

How The Irish Saved Civilization: The Untold Story of Ireland's Heroic Role from the Fall of Rome to the Rise of Medieval Europe is a non-fiction historical book written by Thomas Cahill. Cahill argues a case for the Irish people's critical role in preserving Western Civilization from utter destruction by the Germanic tribes. The book retells the story from the collapse of the Roman Empire and the pivotal role played by members of the clergy at the time.
