I found this video a few months back and decided to save it for a Thursday in my milieu sequence. It's an interesting case study in not only religion, but also trade, culture diffusion, and the effect of war and conquest on the spread of ideas. Though the video is limited in that it only covers the spread of Hinduism, Judaism, Buddhism, Christianity and Islam, it's informative and interesting. I would love to see another version with some of the other, older religions of the world and how these five spread and integrated with their cultures. Perhaps I'll get my wish some day!
Until then, I hope y'all enjoy!Tags: Thursday's Thoughts
