10/13/08: Dogs of God

Historian James Reston, Jr.

By Doug Fabrizio

Salt Lake City, UT – When Christopher Columbus crossed the Atlantic in 1492, Spain was in the midst of the Inquisition and the battle for Islamic Grenada. Historian James Reston Jr.'s Dogs of God deals with the complex interplay of government, religion and popular opinion of the 15th century. Reston joins Doug to explain what that meant for the "Great Age of Discovery." (Rebroadcast)
