Historical Slander
Been reading some old Credenda Agendas lately, and this caught my eye from Aaron Rench:

"Of course, we are familiar with the slander known as the "Dark Ages," and we know that the phrase is just a euphemism for the idea that the church kills progress and culture. And whenever a medieval achievement is too wonderful to be suppressed or hidden any longer, modern historians have developed a mathematical formula, commonly called scholarly research, which can show how it actually had a secular origin and was part of a defiant revolution against all organized religion."
