Christianity: A History

8x 48m Co Production with CTVC for Channel 4

"Christianity: A History" is a major eight part series, presenting alternative views on the history of Christianity. Each film is authored by a different presenter; some are believers, some are not - but from Howard Jacobson to Rageh Omar to Cherie Blair, each has a deeply personal reason for taking part. Each thought-provoking film will investigate a key moment in Christianity's history, from its birth in Palestine, through its conquest of the Roman Empire and its conversion of Britain; from the bloody legacy of the Crusades to the intolerance and division of the Reformation; from its global expansion at the barrel of a colonial gun to the devastating impact of Science; and finally through to its future prospects in the world of the 21st century.
