Unsettled Christianity

Gloria Dei homo vivens – St Irenaeus

a project worthy of your attention

The task which I am setting myself (if I ever master the technology) is to set up an interactive world map, which can display the stories of each of the groups I have looked at, against what was happening economically and politically in their geographical locations which may have contributed to their foundations and eventual decline. I also want to look at the common themes which run between them, problems and successes, hopefully resulting in a more complete view of disparate groups which tried to carve out a niche for themselves in a rapidly changing world in such a similar way.

I think I have my work cut out for me.  If anyone has any advice, it will be gratefully received.

  1. Know More Than I Should says

    Map not necessary. Everything you need to know is all around you. Decline starts at the top and tricks down.
