S/o world cultures/ comparative religions documentaries


Recommended Posts

Globe Trekker and Families of the World are both free on Amazon Prime. I'm planning on using these next year for our Eastern Hemisphere study. We will be discussing religion but more from a Christian standpoint and missions since my daughter wants to go into missions.

For religion...

 

We watched parts of this BBC series:

Around the World in 80 Faiths. It was interesting - it followed a British vicar as he went around the world meeting people who practiced lots of different religions. His perspective was clearly as an open minded, liberal leaning, Christian, which I liked. I didn't like so much that a lot of the religions the show portrayed were probably best described as "fringe" - though certainly not all. I won't link it, but you can easily find it streaming on a number of platforms for free.

 

We also watched a slightly older (maybe late 90's or early aughts) BBC series that focused on Judaism, Christianity and Islam, but I can't seem to find that one to link it.
