Chesterton: Modern Credulity

“It is a curious irony that such a modern man thinks that people in the Middle Ages believed anything they were told. For in truth he only thinks it because he himself believes anything he is told about the Middle Ages. It is modern credulity that has invented medieval credulity.”

– G.K. Chesterton
