Description:

This 13-part series follows the journey which Abraham, the first of the prophets, made some 4,000 years ago from Ur to Jerusalem and as far as Mecca. To make this journey again today means discovering all the vitality of Abraham's posterity and incredible flourishing of spiritual movements affected by thousands of years of religious quarrels, torn apart by internal differences, decimated by persecutions but preserved by geographic accident, movements which all stem from the same common origin.

Shiites, Followers of Ali: The first dissidence within Islam, Shiism had been opposed to the authority of the Sunni caliphs and more generally to power of any kind.
