Almost a third of the world's population, some 1430 million people, professes the Christian faith. For the past 2000 years the Christian Church has had an incalculable impact on the traditions, values, development and culture of all western societies and indeed on the world as a whole. This illustrated atlas covers the history of the church from its early days, when Christianity was established under Roman rule, through the Middle Ages, when Christianity spread across Europe, to the present day, when the Church has to battle against more secular values. It includes many special features - for instance, on icons, church music and new Christian groups in America - as well as a chronological table, a bibliography and a gazetteer.
