Around the World in 80 Faiths was a British television series which was first broadcast by the BBC on 2 January 2009. The series was presented by the Anglican vicar, Pete Owen-Jones, who was researching the various faiths from around the world.
There was also a book planned to accompany the series, written by Owen-Jones and published by BBC Books, but the book is not published.
Famous quotes containing the words faiths and/or world:
“Thou hast conquered, O pale Galilean; the world has grown grey from thy breath;
We have drunken of things Lethean; and fed on the fullness of death.
Laurel is green for a season, and love is sweet for a day;
But love grows bitter with treason, and laurel outlives not May.
Sleep, shall we sleep after all? for the world is not sweet in the
For the old faiths loosen and fall, the new years ruin and rend.”
—A.C. (Algernon Charles)
“Self-love is the love of a mans own self, and of everything else for his own sake. It makes people idolaters to themselves, and tyrants to all the world besides.”
—François, Duc De La Rochefoucauld (16131680)
