    Secular humanism has triumphed. Everything the late Victorians and Edwardians believed would bring human happiness has been achieved: Technology has made it so no one needs to work for a living, the social sciences ensure a smooth-running social order, and, in the name of tolerance, religious beliefs have been uprooted and eliminated except for a single holdout - a largely discredited and rapidly shrinking Catholic Church. Yet people are unhappy.

    Il titolo originale di questo libro "None Other Gods" indica già che il romanzo è la storia di una conversione. Nel libro si tratta della conversione di un rampollo della nobiltà inglese a una vita in povertà (con un rosario in mano); nella vita dell'autore si tratta della sua conversione dal protestantesimo (fu arcivescovo di Canterbury) al Cattolicesimo.

    "Il signore del mondo", pubblicato nel 1907 e scritto dal vescovo cattolico inglese Robert Hugh Benson è effettivamente, come da lui stesso affermato nella sua prefazione, per vari aspetti, un libro sconcertante. Anche se il tessuto narrativo non ha lo spessore del capolavoro letterario, è innegabile che quest'opera colpisce perché sembra scritta da qualcuno che (dettagli tecnologici a parte) abbia potuto gettare uno sguardo sul nostro mondo globalizzato, e vedere il progressivo arrendersi dell'umanità al disumano progetto totalitarista e materialista che lo sta fagocitando.
