Fantastic. Very thoroughly researched history of how wealth and Christianity intersected during the end of the Roman Empire and the start of the Medieval era.

Totally fascinating and a little scary. This book is about our internal passengers, the microorganisms that live in and on us throughout our lives, and how we’ve been intentionally and unintentionally getting rid of them with antibiotics. As it turns out, we might need to put some of them back.
