The millennial tradition of Christianity has to be studied in a historical perspective, which reveals its key contribution to the formation of European culture. At the same time, it should also be reviewed in connection with the transformations of the Christian values in the situation of the present day. One should approach the intricate and rich history above all from the point of view of the believer, who wishes to expand his knowledge about the roots of the faith, the historical fate of his religious community and the present-day challenges facing the Church and every Christian. "History of Christianity. For a Better Comprehension of Our Time" answers clearly, audaciously and with great erudition all these questions. Alain Corbin, the established French historian "of the imagined and the tangible" has brought together almost sixty outstanding specialists, who present in an accessible and intriguing manner the origins of Christianity and the evolution of the three major religious denominations: Catholicism, Eastern Orthodox Christianity and Protestantism, with their theological justifications, church structure, religious practices, political activities and artistic achievement.
