AbstractThe history of the world is discussed within these books. A Christian point of view is taken, as the series begins with Creation and discusses biblical events such as the Great Deluge. These texts include history from biblical times, as well as the creation of the Roman Empire, the Visigoths in Spain, some history of the Middle East and also the beginnings of the British Empire. Many facets of each society are discussed, such as the arts, sciences, and religious and social customs of each region.
