A History of God

For thousands of years people believed in many gods, which is called “Polytheism“, but douring history, god transformed to a single unit – one “real” good instead of many gods was created. This form of religion is called “Monotheism“. But still people believe in “Saints” that kind of replaced the single gods by attaching certain tasks to the saints. They become patriots for certain jobs or areas.

Based on Karen Armstrong’s book, this documentary examines the concept of God in different religions, like in the three major monotheistic religions from the days of Abraham to modern times. Through analysis of historic and holy texts and incorporation of ancient art and artifacts, the film explores the deity written about in the Bible and the Quran. The evolution and intertwining of various Christian, Jewish and Islamic interpretations of God are also addressed in this documentary film about god in different times and religions.
