A History of Christianity- BBC Documentary

 I've recently become interested in learning about the history of religion. This is a big undertaking, but I think in doing so I am learning about a whole host of issues encompassing political history, the history of ideas, cultural history, art and literary history as well as the history of myth-making itself.

A History of Christianity is a six-part British television series originally broadcast on BBC Four in 2009. The series was presented by Diarmaid MacCulloch, Professor of History of the Church at St Cross College Oxford, and considers the evolution of the Christian faith and its four main forms: Orthodoxy, Oriental Christianity, Western Catholicism and Protestantism.
Episode 2: Catholicism - The Unpredictable Rise of Rome
Episode 3: Orthodoxy - From Empire to Empire
Episode 4: Reformation - The Individual Before God
Episode 5: Protestantism - The Evangelical Explosion
Episode 6: God in the Dock

Thanks to the Atheist Media blog for the great find.
