Christianity I and II DVD set

The complete, two-thousand-year sweep of Christianity comes alive in this extraordinary DVD set (I & II) that brings together all the programs from the acclaimed VHS sets CHRISTIANITY: THE FIRST THOUSAND YEARS and CHRISTIANITY: THE SECOND THOUSAND YEARS in a single package. It is an epic beyond anything Hollywood could 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 revolutionary changes of Vatican II, CHRISTIANITY traces the rise and history of one of the world's great religions. Scholars explore everything from the intertwined fates of the Roman Empire and the faith it first persecuted, then adopted, to the challenges posed by the Reformation. And theologians detail how the New Testament was shaped and how it, in turn, shaped the world we live in today.
Drawing on ancient texts, the Scriptures and visits to sites like Istanbul's Hagia Sophia, this is a spellbinding, authoritative account of the evolution of one of the world's great religions.
