THE REOPENING OF THE WESTERN MIND The Resurgence of Intellectual Life from the End of Antiquity to the Dawn of the Enlightenment

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Mark Bramhall

History • 27.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2022

The title may sound forbidding, but this impressive audiobook encompasses in one clear and highly accessible narrative all of Western Civilization from antiquity to the 1700s. Narrator Mark Bramhall is a reliable guide for such a vast undertaking. Steady, fluent, in full command of names and nomenclature, he has a bit of amiability and gravel in his voice. Such ease and precision can only be the result of meticulous preparation. Without frills, he maintains a narrative thread that crosses innumerable centuries, languages, and boundaries both temporal and ecclesial. The narrative is divided into discrete chapters that can be listened to in order, or not. Hour for hour, few audiobooks are as profitable and enriching, and few narrators as satisfying. D.A.W.
