About the Author

THOMAS CAHILL's appealing approach to distant history won the attention of millions of readers in North America and beyond. Cahill is the author of six volumes in the Hinges of History series: How the Irish Saved Civilization, The Gifts of the Jews, Desire of the Everlasting Hills, Sailing the Wine-Dark Sea, Mysteries of the Middle Ages, and Heretics and Heroes. They have been bestsellers not only in the United States but also in countries ranging from Italy to Brazil. He is also the author of A Saint on Death Row. He died in 2022.


"Divertingly instructive--gratifying--. [Cahill] makes Jesus a still-living literary presence."--The New York Times

"Engaging--. Cahill strips away the pious accretions of 2000 years so that a picture of Jesus as an actual human being emerges."--BookPage

"A deft march through time and through theology in the making--. [Cahill's] own gift-giving is his ability to climb inside the scholarship and enliven it."--Philadelphia Inquirer

"Cahill constructs his stories as occassions for celebration...He seeks to encourage a sense of appreciation for the gifts offered the present from the past...Each of his books offers moments of genuine insight into the workings of culture, literature, and the human heart." -Luke Timothy Johnson, Commonweal

"Compelling--powerful--. Cahill is a convivial storyteller."--Portland Oregonian
