Uses maps to trace the history and development of the Christian church, and describes the international church today, images of Christ, religious orders, holidays, and church music and buildings.
This is more than simply an atlas. It is an illustrated history of the Christian Church from its beginning to the present day. The text, produced by a team of British and American scholars, treats the story in three broad divisions: early Christianity, the medieval church, and the Reformation/Post-Reformation era. Supplementary material on Christian traditions, missionary expansion, and the interplay between Christian and secular ideologies is also given. The presentation is straightforward and objective; 42 original maps and 302 illustrations complement the text.
