The Story of Europe: Beliefs and Ideas
Beliefs and Ideas
Season 1  |  Episode 2  |  SBS  |  December 1, 2018

For many Europeans, Europe is synonymous with the 'Christian Occident'. But like so much of what has shaped our civilisation, Christianity also comes from the East. It is not the only 'one-faith belief' that shapes the continent: even before Christianity, Judaism spread throughout the Roman Empire. On the Iberian Peninsula, Muslim Moors rule from the 8th to the 15th century. But that is not enough: the faith community of Christians is breaking up as well.
