An interview on Think Forward with Diana Butler Bass about historical memory, particularly Christianity. Have we lost our memory, and what consequences could this have? She discusses the struggle in deciding which notorious (and not so notorious) Christians in history to include in her book. I wonder how much the person writing about a history affects the contents of that history. Clearly different authors would choose different historical figures to highlight. So what exactly is memory, and is it different from historical memory. What is lost when we lose memory?
