Professor Diarmaid MacCulloch of Oxford University – one of the world's leading church historians – reveals the origins of Christianity and explores what it means to be a Christian.
When Diarmaid MacCulloch was a small boy, his parents used to drive him round historic churches. Little did they know that they had created a monster, with the history of the Christian Church becoming his life’s work. In a series sweeping across four continents, Professor MacCulloch goes in search of Christianity's forgotten origins.
