Summary
It is an epic saga, embracing emperors and preachers, saints and sinners, the teaching of a man accepted by millions as the Savior, and the battles fought in his name. From the Crucifixion to the Crusades, this video traces the rise of one of the world's great religions. Scholars explore the intertwined fates of the Roman Empire and the faith it first persecuted, then later adopted. Theologians reveal how the New Testament was shaped, how pagan festivals were transformed into Christian holidays and how modern discoveries shed new light on the dawn of Christianity
