I have spent a considerable amount of time looking into the impact of the Greek heritage and its meeting with Christian and Islamic cultures, and on pondering why the Scientific Revolution took place in Europe and not elsewhere. This started with a post at The Brussels Journal, and continued with an essay in three parts at Jihad Watch. I have now combined these four essays, with some changes and additions, into one long post of about 23,000 words at the Gates of Vienna. This booklet can be quoted or republished in full by anybody who wants to as long as I am credited as the author. It can also be translated into other languages, which the German blog Acht der Schwerter is already doing.
