Tracing back to ancient Greece, specifically Crete, the history of Europe unfolds, highlighting the inception of the continent’s first high culture and the foundational myth of the Phoenician princess Europa’s kidnapping by Zeus. Narrator Christopher Clark guides viewers through this journey in a 6-part documentary series. Europe is often synonymous with the “Christian Occident”, yet its civilisation is shaped by various faiths, including Christianity from the Orient, Judaism throughout the Roman Empire, and Islam in the Iberian Peninsula up to the 15th century. The “Europeanisation of the Earth” commenced with Christopher Columbus’s discovery of America while seeking a new route to India on behalf of the Spaniards, marking a “golden age” for Europeans but resulting in the suffering of millions in their colonies.
