Christianity is the belief in the existence of Christ in the flesh, as a savior to mankind, so it most certainly applies to all forms of it. To all the Christian commenters trying to separate themselves from Catholicism: It is likely only because of the success of the Catholic church that Christianity in any form still exists today, so call it a cult if you like, it is still the truth about the rise of Christianity when Rome ruled, like the titles proclaims. In that respect it is an excellent documentary that shows several of the forgotten tactics used to keep this religion alive.

Interesting outlook on what was taboo and mundane at the time. What was accepted and what beliefs reigned. Visiting museums and such during my life has taught me that polytheism was dominant for a long long time, but the idea of another god being the true diety has run rampant since. I recommend this doc for anybody that wants to feed the brain.

This has nothing to do with Christianity but the rise of the pagan religion called Catholicism which has nothing to do with the early Christians.

Good documentary... although the Roman Empire collapsed shortly after Christianity went there...
