Narrated by Ben Kingsley, each installment in the Religions of the World series offers an in-depth investigation into the practices and theology of a major world religion. Through interviews with experts, examination of artifacts, and dramatic reenactments, the major facets of these faiths are brought to light and explicated. In this particular video, viewers will examine how the questions of ancient philosophers and their descendants have led to efforts both to undermine and strengthen the dominant religious orders of their day. Included are considerations of the thought of Kant, Aristotle, Sartre and many others.
