"It is an epic beyond anything Hollywood could hope to imagine, embracing emperors and itinerant preachers, the teachings of a man accepted by millions as the Savior and the battles fought in His name. From the Crucifixion to the coming of the Crusades, Christianity: the first thousand years traces the rise of one of the world's greatest religions. Scholars explore the intertwined fates of the Roman Empire and the faith it persecuted, and 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."--Container.
