Historian Tom Holland in Ely
Christianity is the most enduring and influential legacy of the ancient world, and its emergence the single most transformative development in Western history. In ‘Dominion’ award-winning historian and broadcaster Tom Holland will tell the story of how we came to be what we are, and how we think the way that we do, in the broadest historical context. Ranging in time from the Persian invasion of Greece in 480 BC to the on-going migration crisis in Europe today, and from Nebuchadnezzar to the Beatles, it will explore just what it was that made Christianity so revolutionary and disruptive.
