Expanse Through Time of the Five Major Religions

This quick video is a facinating showcase of how the five major religions of the world expanded and contracted across geography through time.  Christianity, Judism, Buddhism, Hinduism and Islam all had their own political and geographic trajectories in addition to their unique senses of spiritualism and their contributions to religous understandings.

Often times their respective paths came at the cost of zero sum games – where one ebbs forward, the other recedes.  While some of these movements represented the march of war and conquest – often times religion was shared with new communites peacefully as new and old neighbors sought out existential answers and reached to others for aid.  Only Antarchtica was unaffected… until now…  Enjoy



Unitarianism (from Latin unitas “unity, oneness”, from unus “one”) is a Christian theological movement named for its belief that the God in Christianity is one person, as opposed to the Trinity (tri- from Latin tres “three”) which in many other branches of Christianity defines God as three persons in one being: the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.[1] Unitarian Christians, therefore, believe that Jesus was inspired by God in his moral teachings, and he is a savior,[2][3] but he was not a deity or God incarnate. Unitarianism does not constitute one single Christian denomination, but rather refers to a collection of both extant and extinct Christian groups, whether historically related to each other or not, which share a common theological concept of the oneness nature of God.
