"2 Kings 6:17 is my favorite verse because the servant of Elijah could only see disaster from his limited perspective, but Elijah helped him see from God's perspective that there is always more going on than meets the eye. God is active in ways that we may never fully realize - but we can trust."

Aristotle's Journey to Europe: A Synthetic History of the Role Played by the Islamic Empire in the Transmission of Western Educational Philosophy Sources from the Fall of Rome through the Medieval Period

Randall R. Cloud

From the Abstract: After the fall of Rome, how did the work and words of the ancient Greek philosophers make their way, textually and intellectually, into later European thought?

After the fall of Rome, how did the work and words of the ancient Greek philosophers make their way, textually and intellectually, into later European thought? There were two primary and obvious paths that this Greek literature could have taken to reach medieval Europe after the split of the Roman Empire into east and west sectors, but these two potential paths functionally became, instead, dual roadblocks to its transmission.
