I. INTRODUCTION

Founded in the 1st century AD by Jesus of Nazareth (the Christ, or the Anointed One of God), Christianity has become the largest of the world's religions. Geographically the most widely diffused of all religions, it has a constituency of more than 1,000,000,000. Its largest groups are the Roman Catholic Church, the Eastern Orthodox churches, and the Protestant churches; in addition to these churches there are several independent churches of Eastern Christianity as well as numerous sects throughout the world. See also EASTERN ORTHODOXY ; ROMAN CATHOLICISM ; and PROTESTANTISM .

This article first considers the nature and development of the Christian religion, its ideas, and its institutions. This is followed by an examination of several intellectual manifestations of Christianity. Finally, the position of Christianity in the world, the relations among its divisions and denominations, its missionary outreach to other peoples, and its relations with other world religions are discussed. For supporting material on various topics, see BIBLICAL LITERATURE AND ITS CRITICAL INTERPRETATION ; DOCTRINES AND DOGMAS, RELIGIOUS ; JESUS: THE CHRIST AND CHRISTOLOGY ; RITES AND CEREMONIES, SACRED ; and SACRED OFFICES AND ORDERS .
