Films About Church History?

Recommended Posts

I will be doing a teaching internship during my final semester of seminary this spring, teaching a Church History course which covers the Protestant Reformation until the 20th century. I get to help structure the readings and assignments, and the professor is also a cinephile who has invited me to consider adding films to the syllabus for the students to watch.

So, what are some great films for a graduate-level course on church history? These can be films about particular events, key figures, movements, or ideas, but mainly historical (as opposed to entirely fictionalized, though I am considering Silence). This course focuses on the Reformation and beyond, but I'd be interested in films about pre-Reformation events too. Here's what I've come up with so far:

  • A Man for All Seasons
  • Monsieur Vincent
  • The Flowers of St. Francis
  • The Mission
  • The Passion of Joan of Arc
  • Luther
