Teaser Tuesday - 15 May

Teaser Tuesday

The rules are:
  • Grab your current read.
  • Let the book fall open to a random page.
  • Share with us two (2) 'teaser' sentences from that page, somewhere between lines 7 and 12.
  • You also need to share the title and author of the book that you’re getting your 'teaser' from .. that way people can have some great book recommendations if they like the teaser you've given!
The most critical moment had come sometimes between 496 and 506 when King Clovis agreed to be baptized by a Catholic bishom at Reims. A shrewd politician, Clovis embraced Rome to gain the support of Gallo-Roman Catholics in his successful war against the Arian Goths in what is now central and northern France.
(sometimes?) Not Church history but the development of the calendar - from David Ewing Duncan's book The Calendar - I was given this book back in 1999 and it has just made its way to the top of the reading pile...
