History of Christianity BBC film series
Staring in May and over the course of six weeks, Calvary will be screening a six-part documentary series entitled “A History of Christianity: The First Three Thousand Years” by Diarmaid MacCulloch, an Oxford history professor whose books about Cranmer and the Reformation have been acclaimed as masterpieces. The series reveals the true origins of Christianity and delves into what it means to be a Christian. Intelligent, thought-provoking and magisterial in its scope the series uncovers how a small Jewish sect that preached humility became the biggest religion in the world. MacCulloch shows how, after a semblance of unity in its earliest centuries, the Christian church divided during the next 1400 years into three increasingly distanced parts, of which the western Church was by no means always the most important: he observes that at the end of the first eight centuries of Christian history, Baghdad might have seemed a more likely capital for worldwide Christianity than Rome. Beautifully filmed, the series includes subjects from Palestine in the first century to India in the third, from Damascus to China in the seventh century and from San Francisco to Korea in the twentieth.This is the first truly global history of Christianity, and is based on MacCulloch’s 2009 book, “Christianity: The First Three Thousand Years” which Archbishop of Canterbury Rowan Williams described as “a triumphantly executed achievement.”Each episode is one hour long and will be shown in the Parish Hall on Tuesdays at 11:00 am and again on Wednesdays at 6:30 pm, starting May 3. There will be discussion following each screening.DATES, TIMES AND EPISODE TITLES:1. The First Christianity — May 3, 11:00 am; May 4, 6:30 pm2.
