While Europe Slept

Elshtain, J. B. (2009). While Europe Slept. First Things: A Monthly Journal of Religion & Public Life, 191: 33-6.

 Abstract: The article presents a reflection on the consequences of European intellectual society abandoning its religious ideological history. It is asserted that the Europe of the 21st-century refuses to acknowledge its religious roots and that as a result its lack of ideological foundation could lead to a loss of identity, the degradation of human rights, and possibly even nihilist extremism.
