This is a list of movies or/and mini series set in the Bibical times.

There is no date mentioned, and though the Roman Empire is part of the Biblical time frame, the list does not focus on the Romans.

Please note: I am not really into Biblical tales, nevertheless this list was discovered by the Period Drama List: The Romans. While undertaking this project, I found there was a number of productions, which were inpired by Bible stories.

This is a list of movies or/and mini series set in the 509 BC-476 AD .

The history of the Romans is divided into 3 periods: Ancient Roman 753 BC – 509 BC , Roman republic 509 BC – 27 BC and the Roman Empire 27 BC – AD 1453. However the list main focus is the period of Republic (ruled by autocratic government), the reign of the Roman Empire, (coined during the rise of Emporor Augustus)and the Fall of the Roman Empire.

Please note: Biblical themes are not listed. This is to ensure the list is focused on the Romans period. Since there is a large number of Italian made productions, I have limited the number listed; as not many, outside Italy, would of seen them.

This is a list of movies or/and mini series set in the circa 800-1100.

The Scandinavian (Norse) Vikings were many things: excelling as settlers, explorers, seamen, traders and raiders. The Clergy often refers to them as heathens and murderous hordes, voilent and depraved; for their assaults showed no empathy towards their fellow men. Yet they have left their mark in the pages of history.

NOTE: I have to limit this list and focus mainly on the culture, art, mythology, costumes and characters of the Vikings. The main reason for this was to seperate the Period Dramas-Medievil from The Period Dramas-The Age of the Vikings.

There are plenty of horrific viking movies and others...let's not go there. If there is a really decent movie regarding vikings, your comments are welcomed.

This is a list of movies or/and mini series set in the period between the 8th century BC - 30th century AD

The Age of Antiquity is divided into 3 parts: Arachic (8-6th century BC), Classical Greece (5th to 4th centuries BC), Hellenistic period (340 to 330 BC), Roman Republic (5th to 1st centuries BC), Roman Empire (1st century BC to 5th century AD) and Late Antiquity (4th to 6th centuries AD). For this is I have concentrated on the Arachic, Classical and Hellenistic Periods.

Unfortunately there was not a great deal of productions that have dealt with time time period, though naturally there are a many number of Greek and Italian productions. For this list I have tried not to add them as many would have not the fortunate to see them outside of Greece and Italy.

I have laxed the time period in this list as many will notice I have added films from outside the time period and from different cultures. The reason why I have done this is because, I simply do not want to mix up the other Period Dramas. Mythology, Myths and legends are the main contents, as well as the productions set in the Arachic times. However I am willing to take on board any comments who can strongly argue their case. Sometimes it's difficult to have the correct era, especially in myths, folk tales and legends.
