Professor Diarmaid MacCulloch explores how Christianity has shaped western attitudes to sex, gender and sexuality throughout history.
Part 1: From Pleasure to Sin
Travelling from Israel to Greece, Italy and Ireland, he begins by showing how the early Christians transformed sex from a biological necessity into a vice, from a pleasure into a sin. Even though Jesus Christ said very little about sex, Christianity soon promoted celibacy as the Christian ideal, turned sex into something dangerous and made even marriage second-best.

Part 2: Sexual Revolution
Travelling from the north east of England to Germany and Italy, he explains how the Christian Church took control of marriage in the 11th century, turning a civil institution into a sacred rite of Christianity. And he reveals how the Protestant Reformation launched a sexual revolution.

Part 3: Christianity vs the West
Professor Diarmaid MacCulloch explores how the offical Christian Church and Western society have moved apart on issues of sex and gender over the last 300 years. The Enlightenment encouraged people to question authority and that included the Church's teachings on sex. In the Victorian age, sex became a subject for scientists to study, instead of a sin for the Church to condemn. And in the mid 20th century, Christians were at the forefront of the successful campaign for the decriminalisation of homosexuality. Does Christian thinking still have anything to teach a secular world about sex?
