Information about the Christian religion

Christianity began in the mid 1st century, splitting from the Jewish religion and growing under the direction of the Twelve Apostles. Early Christians were subject to persecution that was often violent, bloody, deadly, and horrific. The religion persisted though, spreading throughout the Mediterranean and Europe to become one of the most dominant religions on the planet.

The Catholic church was the most dominant form of early Christian religion and for years it ruled European, often with an iron fist and spilling a great deal of blood in the name of Christ. The history of all religions is filled with strife but like so many others, this religion is a beautiful thing capable of giving people great comfort and of showing them the way to salvation. Christian’s believe that an afterlife awaits them in Heaven (and sometimes Hell) and that if they’re good here on Earth life will be great after they die.
