The historian Tristram Hunt explores how Protestantism has affected the lives of people in the Protestant revolution. This is a story of a revolution that has affected all people in the West, and almost every country in the world. It is a revolution that affects the very structure of existence – what we do to live, who we vote, we’re going to war and how we see ourselves as individuals and as nations.

The series investigates the scientific, cultural, economic and political movement with the help of leading academic witnesses, and concludes that the scope of Protestantism is so profound that it is impossible to imagine the modern world without it. The series explores how the revolutionary nature of the reform shaped the world we live in today, modern art of war in Iraq. When Martin Luther nailed his 95 Theses to the church door at Wittenberg, he unleashed a revolution in thinking and events that have both amazed and horrified him.

Of modern capitalism to the nuclear family form, Protestantism has shaped the Western world in its image, and this is the dramatic story of how and why this happened. Tristan says: “Now that the traditional culture of Protestantism has fallen in the UK, which wanted to show how an elemental force that this religion has been in shaping our modern world.” Of the books we read, political parties vote, the way we live and love, the Protestant revolution continues to resonate. “As Britain struggles with its sense of national identity and the forces of evangelical Protestantism growing worldwide understanding of that faith, its meaning and legacy seems more vital than ever.”
