    To understand Christian history and Western Civilization, one must understand Greek history. All four Gospels were composed in Greek. The empire Alexander conquered and the culture his followers conveyed became the Roman territories in which Christianity first spread. Ancient Greek philosophers, particularly Aristotle, bequeathed to Christian theology a framework and method that profoundly shaped Christian faith down through the ages.

But the history of reform is nearly as old as the Church itself; indeed, one of the constants in Church history is change.

Rather, we must examine their complex historical and cultural context.
