    In AD 476 the Roman Empire fell - or rather, its western half did. Its eastern half, which would come to be known as the Byzantine Empire, would endure and often flourish for another 11 centuries. Though its capital would move to Constantinople, its citizens referred to themselves as Roman for the entire duration of the empire's existence.

    Joseph M. Dolan says: "Excellent Book about Little Known History"
    "Unexpectedly captivating"

    If you could sum up Lost to the West in three words, what would they be?

    Rich, captivating, aha!


    What other book might you compare Lost to the West to and why?

    The lost history of Christianity (Philip Jenkins). Opened a new realm of history that had been totally skipped in my schooling.


    Have you listened to any of Lars Brownworth’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Haven't listened.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No, it needed digesting.


    Any additional comments?

    I loved it when I found out the author is the narrator.
