Historical Religious Films

by Roy Hammerling

Historical Religious Films: Historical religious films deal with religious subject matter either in a documentary or historical narrative. Films like “Schindler’s List” about the holocaust or “Shadowlands” about the life of CS Lewis are examples of historical narratives. Documentary films like “Jesus Camp” or “For the Bible Tells Me So” represent two modern examples of movies in this category.
