Summary In a landmark three-part series, Dr Michael Scott sets outs across the historic landscapes of the ancient world to discover how and Christianity becomes the official religion of the Roman Empire. In less than four centuries, the little-known cult of Jesus rises from a disparate collection of beliefs that do not even go by the name of Christianity, into a dynamic, coherent force that dominates the mighty Roman Empire. This extraordinary story is an epic human drama filled with suspense, political intrigue, brutal religious persecution, and sheer luck.Rome's attempt to stamp out Christianity ends up inspiring it as the cult of martyrdom, with death considered a 'baptism of blood', becomes a heroic victory over their oppressors.
