Abstract:

After the Roman empire collapsed, Britain underwent a religious revolution. Warring pagan tribes became one nation, under one religion-Christianity. This film will tell the story Christianity's vital role in creating a national identity which has survived ever since. Beginning with the fall of Rome, the program charts the precarious survival of Christianity in the Celtic West and Ireland, continuing with the struggle for souls which followed, between three different religious traditions - the warrior pagan religion of the Anglo-Saxons, Celtic Christianity, and a resurgent Roman Christianity which arrived with missionaries. Presenter Robert Beckford tells how these conflicts were resolved. He explains the role of the Venerable Bede and Alfred the Great in inventing England as a Christian nation.
