Narrated by Academy Award winner Ben Kingsley this six volume series for grades 9 and up offers insight into the striking similarities and vast differences among the world's major religions as well as the unique perspective of its many individual cultures. Each 50 minute episode presents a fresh look at the history of our world through the eyes of religion as an in-depth look at religion's role in creating cultural diversity. This session is on Protestant Christianity. See how the political, religious and social events of 16th-century Europe changed the course of history. Examine the context in which these factors sparked the birth of Protestant Christianity. Led by Martin Luther, this spiritual revolution gained momentum and under the helm of other Protestant leaders, thrived and grew into new factions in Europe and North America. Viewers will explore the numerous denominations that developed over the centuries - including Baptists, Calvinists, Mennonites, Presbyterians, Puritans and Quakers. Discover the common ideas shared by most Protestant groups despite the diverse range in ceremonial practices and rituals that vary across the affiliations.
