Religion: 5000 Years in 90 Seconds

How has the geography of religion evolved over the centuries, and where has it sparked wars? This interactive map summarizes in a brief 90 seconds the history of Christianity, Islam, Hinduism, Buddhism, and Judaism. It shows where & when each religion originated, how the religions sometimes came into conflict, and how they spread across the globe. This short history lesson is produced by a site called Maps of War, which features other interactive lessons, including The Imperial History of the Middle East and American Leadership & War. Enjoy.
