    I think a different telling is possible; ecumenicalism, rather than a non-existent eclipse, might be a different way of putting it.

    Certainly, if ecumenicalism has been real (and most would argue it has), that offers real hope for the Islamic world.

      I'm going to go with my interpretation. Ecumenicalism was a response to the rise of science and capitalist technology that necessitated a unified response because of the decline in power of the various christian sects. So I suppose that I was wrong, in that Catholics and Protestants did reconcile, but they did so because they were eclipsed.

      If knowledge is power and power corrupts, does that mean that knowledge corrupts?
