As I suspected...

Adam DeVille: On James Hitchcock's Errors about the East

I was not planning on purchasing the book, History of the Catholic Church, as I suspected it would be too centered from a Latin point of view (and a rather narrow one at that, thought not notably "traditionalist). What single person can have the necessary broad (and ecumenical) perspective to write a tome on Church history? (Someone who could do for history what Adrian Fortescue attempted to do with respect to liturgy?)

How does one fact-check a historian, without being a historian? That is the problem for any minor publisher.
