    Spread of Religion - 5000 years in 90 seconds

    How has the geography of religion evolved over the centuries, and where has it sparked wars? Our map gives us a brief history of the world's most well-known religions: Christianity, Islam, Hinduism, Buddhism, and Judaism. Selected periods of inter-religious bloodshed are also highlighted. Want to see 5,000 years of religion in 90 seconds? Ready, Set, Go!

    Their dating of Christianity's spread to Scandinavia is half a millennium too early though.

    Not really, Judaism itself is a Pagan religion. It's also not monotheistic, but a religion of polytheism, or many gods.

    My religion did not show up but you could hardly call Hinduism monotheistic.

    I liked it as a quick perspective of world religions. Judaism qualifies if for no ther reason then it spawned both Christianity and Islam.

    It misses out Nestorian Christianity's early successes in Central Asia and the Far East.

    There is no 'ism' that is not represented in Hinduism. The reason is simple. What is considered essential is correct social action, 'Dharma'. Personal belief is left open to the adherents. It does not make a difference if you believe in a hundred Gods, or one, or even none.
