Acclaimed PBS series Catholicism debuts

Catholic World News - September 22, 2011

A landmark 10-part television series, entitled simply Catholicism debuts September 22 on some local PBS stations.

The series, inspired by Kenneth Clark’s Civilization, is the work of Father Robert Barron. The National Catholic Register interviews Father Barron about his experiences making the series and his hopes for its impact.

A sweeping look at the history of the Catholic Church and her worldwide influence, Catholicism has earned high praise from critics who have seen advance screenings. The series will start at different times on local PBS stations.

    It looks like Fr. Barron and the Holy Spirit collaborated to tell the story of what is good about Catholicism. Theirs will be a welcome voice among the Church's many critics, both secular and religious.
