Twenty years ago, novelist Salman Rushdie was a wanted man with a million pound bounty on his head. His novel, The Satanic Verses, had sparked riots across the Muslim world. The ailing religious leader of Iran, the Ayatollah Khomeini, had invoked a little-known religious instruction - a fatwa - and effectively sentenced Rushdie to death. Never before had a novel created an international diplomatic crisis on such a scale, and never before had a foreign government publicly called for the killing of a private citizen of another country. The Satanic Verses Affair looks back on the extraordinary events which followed the publication of the book and the ten-year campaign to get the fatwa lifted.

Martin Luther's attack on the all powerful Catholic Church was a knife to the heart of an empire that had endured for over a thousand years. Nailing his treatise to the doors of the Wittenberg Cathedral, this previously obscure German monk changed the world forever, unleashing forces that plunged Europe into war and chaos. But Luther would do more than revolutionise the Church, he offered the Christian world a new vision of man's relationship with God and, in turn, redefined man's relationship with authority in general.

It is an event that changed the course of human history, and yet, beyond the familiar biblical accounts, shockingly little is known historically about the trial and crucifixion of Jesus. What did he do that resulted in his execution? Who was responsible for his trial and sentencing? How did the story of his execution get reported and passed down through the ages? And why do most biblical historians insist that the gospel story we know, simply can not be true? The Trial of Jesus will reconstruct the 'scene of the crime' and shed new light on the trial and execution, whose story has reverberated - often with great negative effect - through history.
