After the Roman empire collapsed, Britain underwent a religious revolution. Warring pagan tribes became one nation, under one religion-Christianity. This film will tell the story Christianity's vital role in creating a national identity which has survived ever since. Beginning with the fall of Rome, the program charts the precarious survival of Christianity in the Celtic West and Ireland, continuing with the struggle for souls which followed, between three different religious traditions - the warrior pagan religion of the Anglo-Saxons, Celtic Christianity, and a resurgent Roman Christianity which arrived with missionaries. Presenter Robert Beckford tells how these conflicts were resolved. He explains the role of the Venerable Bede and Alfred the Great in inventing England as a Christ [...]

Reformation [electronic resource]

The Reformation split the medieval Church asunder, producing religious wars, massacres and persecutions. Ann Widdecombe, MP, was brought up as a Protestant in the Church of England but became a Catholic fifteen years ago. She finds much to support in the Reformation's initial goals but argues that it went badly wrong, leading Europeans, previously united religiously, to see each other as enemies. She shows how the Reformation played out in England. Beyond the battles of kings, popes and theologians, she explores the way ordinary people responded to the Reformation and its consequences.

Future of Christianity [electronic resource]

Christianity is now over 2,000 years old. Yet today in the West it faces its greatest challenge--modernity and the rapid rise of the secular society. Can Christianity survive in the West? In the final episode of the series, practicing Catholic and leading barrister Cherie Blair examines how Christianity has fared in the face of World Wars, unprecedented suffering and monumental social change. While Christianity is marginal in Western Europe, it is strong in the U.S. Blair examines U.S. megachurches and argues that U.S. Christianity broke free of the tradition, architecture and aesthetics that cut Western European Christianity off from modern society. The U.S. experience shows that Christianity can make itself part of contemporary society.

L'origine du Christianisme: Origin of Christianity

Loading...
Filmmaker-scholars Gérard Mordillat and Jérôme Prieur spent over three years assembling and interviewing 23 of the world's most astute historians, archaeologists, and writers on religion to probe the origins, the emergence of Christianity. In their investigation, they demonstrate how the death and crucifixion of Jesus by the Romans set into motion an irreversible division of Jews and Christians. Three and a half centuries later, Christianity became the official religion of the Empire. How did a story that began in Israel, in Judaism, in Jerusalem, give birth to a separate, worldwide religion that claims millions of believers? These scholars also address explosive issues in the Christian world, including: Did Jesus found the Church? Is Jesus God? Did Jesus have siblings? What is the r [...]

Peter & Paul and the Christian Revolution - Part 1

With their Messiah executed, their dreams crushed, and their cause deemed subversive by the strongest empire the world had ever seen, Jesus's followers faced a bleak future. Their movement seemed destined for extinction. Incredibly, though, Jesus's survivors turned defeat to victory; devastation to jubilation. By one account, it happened on the shores of the Sea of Galilee where Simon Peter and others envisioned the risen Jesus. It was an explosive moment of hope. For the sighting convinced them that Jesus had not, in fact, been beaten, that in his death, Jesus was ushering in God's Kingdom on Earth. Re-infused with hope and determination, Peter became an indomitable figure who would unite his group into a tight community of ardent believers. Dark days were coming, however -- days of [...]

Peter & Paul and the Christian Revolution - Part 2

Spread outside Judea by missionaries like Peter and Paul, the Jesus movement caught on quickly among Jews and non-Jews around the Roman Empire. With success, however, came challenges: challenges from hostile locals, challenges from imperial forces, and challenges from conflicting ideas within the movement itself. Should Gentile converts become Jews? Should they be circumcised? These were hot-button issues in the first century and they threatened to tear the young movement apart. Paul-adamant that there was no time for conversions-fell into open and angry confrontation with some of the oldest Jesus followers. Peter, it seems, tried to mediate the conflict. "The Rock" became a stepping stone between the camps and, for a crucial period, helped keep the movement together. But the center [...]
