  1. While interpretations vary, many historians trace the beginnings of Western civilization to Greek and Roman antiquity. This places the starting point roughly in the eighth century B.C. Some historians believe that Western civilization is distinguished from other civilizations due to three themes running through it: rationality, constitutionalism and an ever-present tension between religion and society [source: Westminster College].
