Description of turbulent times
By Retired Guy
This segment of the PBS Empires Series is difficult to review because of the inherent conflict between the early Biblical accounts of the Letters of Paul which conflict in places with the Acts of Peter. I've never paid much attention to the period of time from the first to the fourth century Constantine's acceptance of Christianity and the Council of Nicea, assuming that there must have been some turmoil over doctrine after the loss of Christ. I'm not qualified to judge the theological issues raised in this segment, but the value to me was learning about that chaotic time and the background to the inevitable controversies that would arise when men lose their charismatic leader with no clear successor. It was a good introduction for me to this period, and encouraged me to learn more.

Feel like i will watch it again and again
By Rico Riche
I was quite surprised with the quality and “quantity” of information from this DVD. It is very well done. It is like someone is reading the Bible to you in a very good way, explaining in details the contradictions and questioning if something else was lost. It goes to the entire history of the main subject and it shows very beautiful landscapes. At the end, I had the feeling of watching it again and again. I am not catholic or protestant and because of that independence I really liked this movie.

PETER & PAUL AND THE CHRISTIAN REVOLUTION
A great addition to anyone's video library. This historically accurate depiction of the first years of Christianity and the effect it had on the Roman Empire and how it spread throughout the known world.
