It had a lot more to do with the fall of Rome, and the barbarian hordes' destruction of things like libraries and places of learning.

Many books were actually preserved by Christian monks (although the later Viking Invasions didn't help in that matter, what with the burning and the looting). Without their diligent transcribing, there are numerous works that would be lost forever.
We also have the Arabs to thank, for much of Grecco-Roman knowledge was preserved in their culture and they even expanded upon it.

if you knew anything about religion you'd understand that christian is a term referring to ALL denominations, Catholic, Protestant, Orthodox etc. to say they are different is like saying a dog is not a canine. All Catholics are Christian, they all believe in the new testament and the teachings of Jesus, but they differ in key areas compared to Orthodox for example. In the end this argument is irrelevent because the ONLY denomination in western europe from 500 to 1500 was Catholic

I'm sure the fall of the Roman empire had nothing to do with factionalism or the pressure of invading pagan groups that conquered the ailing empire .... couldn't have.
