Writing in The Times, Professor AC Grayling, chairman of this year’s Man Booker Prize, argues that numerous Christian ideals – and many of Britain’s defining characteristics – really come from Greece and Rome.

This follows from a comment David Cameron made that Britain is a “Christian nation”. Professor Grayling believes that such a description was “deeply misleading”, and that it is “important in a pluralistic society such as ours that we should not think that uses of “Christian” to suggest kindly attitudes entail that we are a nation of believers in the dogmas and legends of the religion.”
