A Brief History of Disbelief

Jonathan Miller’s Brief His­to­ry of Dis­be­lief is a BBC pro­duc­tion (2005) that offers tele­vi­sion’s first sus­tained look at the hid­den his­to­ry of athe­ism. The three-part doc­u­men­tary takes you from unbe­liev­ers with­in Ancient Greece, to the re-emer­gence of dis­be­lief in 15th and 16th cen­tu­ry Europe, through to the French Enlight­en­ment, Rev­o­lu­tion­ary Amer­i­ca and the rise of Dar­win­ian thought. We’ve post­ed Part 1 below. You can watch Parts 2 and 3 here and here.
