A HIS­TORY OF CHRIS­TIAN­ITY

Irish Daily Mail - - Entertainment -

To­mor­row, 7pm - BBC4

THIS new six-part doc­u­men­tary sees Pro­fes­sor Diar­maid MacCul­loch travers­ing four con­ti­nents in search of Chris­tian­ity’s ori­gins. The BBC blurb says: ‘He over­turns the fa­mil­iar story that it all be­gan when the apos­tle Paul took Chris­tian­ity from Jerusalem to Rome. In­stead he shows that the true ori­gins of Chris­tian­ity lie fur­ther east, and that at one point it was poised to tri­umph in Asia, maybe even in China.’
