Unravelling an epic human drama filled with suspense, political intrigue, brutal religious persecution and sheer luck – Dr Michael Scott is setting out to discover how Christianity became the official religion of the Roman Empire. This is the story of how, in less than four centuries, the little known cult of Jesus rose from a disparate collection of beliefs into a dynamic, coherent force that would one day dominate the world.
At the end of his research into the rise of Christianity, Dr Scott looks at how the religious and political force of Christianity became permanently woven into the fabric of the Roman Empire.
