"It has been said that Christianity brought a loss of nerve and a distrust of reason. But one might argue that Christian revelation put an end to skepticism and gave men a new confidence in reason . . . . Under the tutelage of historical revelation, reason became more certain of its starting point, more confident, less abstract, and more purposeful. Though respectful of its limitations, reason's scope was also expanded and enlarged."

Robert Louis Wilken, The Spirit of Early Christian Thought (Yale 2003) p. 23
