Frontline and American Experience team up to explore the subject of the historical role of religion in American public life, through a series of stories emblematic of major issues and changes. Three pairs of episodes focus on early struggles to define religious freedom, the power of religion to divide a country, and the tangled embrace between religion and politics since WWII, respectively. Extensive commentary by historians and religious scholars buttresses top-flight re-creations, the dialogue of which comes directly from the transcripts, sermons, and personal journals of the actual figures. A printable 35-page study guide is included on disc, with episode summaries, discussion questions, resources, and scene references. Grades 7 and up. Color. Total time: approximately 6 hours.
