Religion

The word religion is derived from Latin “religionem” meaning the respect for what is sacred and reverence for the gods. The contemporary definition states that it is an organized collection of beliefs, cultural systems and word views that connect humanity with an order of existence. The word religion is often interchangeably used with faith or belief system.

However there are those who oppose this, arguing that religion differs from private belief system. Most of the world`s religions offer the answers to the origin of life and universe along with moral and ethic codes of conduct. It is estimated that there are, currently, over 4.200 religions worldwide.

When it comes to the classification of religion, there are five distinctive branches: Abrahamic, Iranian, Indian, African and Indigenous and folk.

There are numerous aspects to consider concerning religion such as the origin and the development, different types of religion and the teachings behind them. There are also other issues religion is concerned with such as economics, health, violence, law and science.

The documentaries and video materials complied in this category are looking into the above mentioned issues.

TV3 brings us a documentary on Ireland`s cults such as “The Palmarians”, “The House of Prayer” or the “Scientologists”. See their structural complexity, hierarchy and means of funding. The story also includes the experiences of their former members and their current views of these churches. It also gives you a chance to look inside these churches and see what exactly is going on.

Discover the origin and history of Christianity in Abkhazia in a documentary that combines these stories of the past and video materials into a fascinating tale. Witness some of the monuments, monasteries and the stories about the saints in a documentary directed by Sergei Yazvinskiy.

Ancient mythologies around the world are filled with tales of demons and gods from beezlebub, djinn, lamia to baal and satan. This documentary is looking into these mythological creatures from the perspective of Christianity. Also have a chance to see the history of witchcraft, demon possession and how people used the above mentioned terms to their benefit in times of war.
