This post is a bit off-topic but the map you are going to see is great source to visualise how the geography of religion evolved over the centuries, and where it sparked wars. This 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.
This makes it more clearly than the stuff I learned many years ago at school.
Want to see 5,000 years of religion in 90 seconds?
The map will load after a few seconds. Please be patient.
