History of Christianity

Comprises a six episode, online, macro level documentary history of the Christian faith, written and narrated by historian of Christianity Diarmaid MacCulloch. Each episode consists of five to six Flash 4 video segments that can be viewed individually or cumulatively, as an episode (each episode lasts 59 minutes).
