This paper reviews the rise of Christianity during the time of the Roman Empire, its contributions to western philosophical thought over the last fifteen hundred years and some significant philosophical issues of the present day that have been "Christianized" and/or deeply influenced by Christianity. The paper hopes to reveal that, even when they are sharply denouncing it, "modern" philosophers must use Christianity as a starting-point. The paper also argues that the works of Aquinas and Augustine helped popularize Aristotelian and Platonic philosophy and laid the groundwork for the "man-centered" philosophical leanings of the early modern, renaissance period.
