On Wednesday 8th November, 7.30pm, Catherine Nixey will be talking about her book, 'The Darkening Age', the fascinating story of early Christianity. You may be surprised! Far from being meek and mild, these early Christians were violent, ruthless and fundamentally intolerant, systematically destroying the ancient teachings of the Classical world – not quite what we were taught at school! Let us know if you'd like to come for what should be a fascinating evening.

Catherine Nixey studied Classics at Cambridge and subsequently worked as a Classics teacher for several years, before becoming a journalist on the arts desk at The Times, where she still works. She lives in London with her husband.
