The Geography of Faith

See five thousand years of faith in 90 seconds.

Hello, thanks a lot, You'v done a great job.I can only realize how much time and resources does it take to create such a resource!Great work, I am impressed!
Christian faith also known as Jesus of Nazareth, is the central figure of Christianity. He is commonly referred to as Jesus Christ, where "Christ" is a Greek-derived title meaning "Anointed One" which corresponds to the Hebrew-derived "Messiah".
Ram Dass is a contemporary spiritual teacher who wrote the 1971 bestseller Be Here Now. He is well-known for his association with Timothy Leary at Harvard University in the early 1960s, both having been dismissed from their professorships for experiments on the effects of psychedelic drugs on human subjects. He is also known for his travels to India and his association with the Hindu guru, Neem Karoli Baba.
Not too fussed about this. It's a very empire-centric view of religious history. What about the spread of Christianity into Asia before 500AD and India much earlier than that? What about Buddhism in America? What about Paganism? The empire focus becomes only too obvious watching the spread of Buddhism every where in Asia BUT India! This would be better labelled as a history of theocracy.
