Storyline

In this series, Terry Jones presents the recounting of the religious wars for control of the "Holy Lands" waged by Christian Europe against the Islamic world. In addition, Terry Jones recreates specific aspects of those events by exploring the lives of pivotal figures, the technology and the politics of the era. Furthermore, Terry Jones also shows how these acts of religious bigotry at its worst have led to many of the political and ethnic problems we have today.

Great Documentary
24 November 2003 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

At times this documentary was disturbing, talking about pogroms and mass slaughter; then, in the next scene, the topic will switch to Monty Python. And Terry Jones (a former Python) actually makes it work! Watch it (provided you have 4 hours on your hands). You'll learn lots and won't get bored--I promise.
