  The early history of the Christian religion.


The history of the Christian religion is not likely to be studied in public secondary schools.  Some of the reasons for this is the lack of emphasis on world history in schools.  In some schools there is little emphasis on history in general.  Where history is taught it is often American history.  In some schools there is a bias against teaching about the Christian religion. 
 

The A&E Television Networks has produced a documentary on the early history of the Christian religion which is generally a fair presentation.  You will find both liberal and conservative scholars commenting on historical events. 

I have included additional information in the curriculum materials below.  I use this as worksheet for students so blank spaces are filled in as we watch and discuss the documentary.

Historians and politicians tend to glorify the New Deal.  They argue that the New Deal preserved democracy in America which was threatened by Communism and Fascism.  This tends to obscure the problems with the New Deal and its programs that did not work.
