Part one of this program places Christianity-an outlawed faith-within the context of the religiously diverse Roman Empire, whose citizens worshipped the old Greco-Roman gods, mystery cult figures such as Mithra, and the Emperor himself. But by appealing to all people and promising eternal salvation, Christianity began to surpass the popularity of the Roman religions. Part two begins with Diocletian's Great Persecution; proceeds to Constantine's conversion, the Edit of Milan, and the Council of Nicaea; and closes with the excommunication of Theodosius."Container."

"Part one of this program documents both the papal reforms that severed the ties between the Church and the wealthy Roman families and the rift between Rome and Constantinople. Efforts to reconcile differences in doctrine, clerical practice, and political influence ended in the excommunication of Constantinople's Patriarch. Part two outlines the first four Crusades, in which Jerusalem was won and lost and Byzantium fell to the swords of its own Christian allies. The transfiguring influence of Islamic scholarship on Europe is also spotlighted."--Container
Georgian London ( Visual )
2 editions published in 1988 in English and held by 18 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Handel's Messiah (spectacularly performed in Westminster Abbey, near Handel'a tomb in the Poet's Corner) characterized British taste and style toward the mid-eighteen century : dramatic and ornate yet religious, in English (nationalistic self-congratulation was the mood) and large in every way. The program sets the historical stage, explains who employed Handel and how his talents as composer and virtuoso organist were utilized, and discusses the work and importance of Arne and Boyce. Performances include sections from Handel's Samson and Jepthe, as well as selections from the works of Arne and Boyce

Re-inventing Japan ( Visual )
3 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This program argues that although Japan's scientists have been adept at finding ways to commercialize the basic discoveries about nature made in the West, her entire culture stills militates against undertaking the fundamental and original research needed to ensure her participation in the benefits of the emerging quantum and biology-based technologies, which are destined to dominate the 21st century
Coping with scientific and social change 19th and 20th centuries ( Visual )
1 edition published in 1999 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Part one of this program, presented against a backdrop of Gothic architecture and pre-Raphaelite art, asks whether religion and science can coexist in a post-Darwinian world. Are creation and evolution mutually exclusive? Part two focuses on the questions raised by the global movement toward social equality. Must Christianity adapt to survive, and if so, do issues like female priests and homosexuality threaten to rob it of its scriptual authority? Should the Church restructure along democratic lines? And what role will New Age religions and the Pentecostal movement play as Christianity enters its third millennium?"--Videocassette container
