being a history major and all, its actually because of the fall of the roman empire, and disintegration of society, thanks to Christian monks, we were able to save a lot of the knowledge of the past, because the copied the documents that would other wise have been lost,

You also shouldn't give a lot of credit to the corrupt monks of the time. Would of been nice if they could of taught their communities how to write and read instead of wasting time telling fairy tales.

Being a history major you should know better than that ******** . The reason for the loss is because of the burning of the temple of Alexandria because of the Christians. Christians didn't help preserve **** .

yea they made mistakes, but welcome to the club of being human, and thanks to both Christian monks and Arabic scholars, alot of information was saved, if not for both of these groups a lot of ancients sources would be lost , but of course if evidence disproving they didnt preserve anything confronts you, you will just thumb me down and stay ignorant ...the irony..

He's saying the monks preserved the writings of previous people, and he's right. As training (among other things) they would copy down/have the new monks write/copy down information...
