The volumes in the new series Religions of the World surveys religions that have had a major impact on the history of the world and that continue to play a role in relationships between nations and ethnic groups. All aspects--including roots and founding, primary beliefs and cultural activities, the way the faiths are viewed by the rest of the world, and the experience of growing up as a member of the religion--are be examined. As the world's largest faith, Christianity has long had a tremendous amount of influence on international history and politics. Despite being split into three branches--Roman Catholic, Orthodox, and Protestant--as well as almost innumerable denominations, Christianity has played a major role in directing the course of world affairs, mainly because it is often the dominant faith in wealthy nations.
