The Protestant Revolution - Part 1: The Politics of Belief

New Documentary, Aired: September 13, 2007 - BBC 4
"Four-part documentary series in which historian Tristram Hunt explores the scientific, cultural, economic and political aspects of Protestantism. In this opening part, he uncovers how a debate about religion in 16th Century Germany (Martin Luther's challenge to the Pope) sparked a political revolution - from the bloody battlefields of medieval Germany to the Civil Wars of the 1640s in Britain, Protestantism unleashed a series of revolutions and wars that rippled across Europe."
I will be uploading the next parts as they come out.
