Practiced by over 2 billion people in hundreds of different iterations that reflect local culture, history, and tradition, Christianity is the world’s largest religion.

Travelers encounter the faith in the great cathedrals of Europe and Latin America, among the ethnic minority hill tribes of Burma, and at the monolithic cave churches of Lalibela, Ethiopia.

Through our coverage, Matador attempts to address the issues of how Christianity has influenced our world, and how it continues to influence us on our travels.
