NOTES: Early Christianity (30:00) In the first centuries A.D., barbarian attacks and other factors made the Roman Empire increasingly unstable. People rejected Greco-Roman rationalism and turned toward Mithraism, Judaism, and an emerging Christianity. Concurrently, an increasingly insecure society produced art objects to ward off witches and demons. The Rise of the Church (30:00) Christianity continued many beliefs of earlier cults and broke with Judaism to become the official religion of the Roman Empire under Emperor Constantine. Featured images include the Arch of Titus, art of the catacombs, the good shepherd motif, and visions of the apocalypse.
