Constantine's Sword

Why are intolerance, violence and war so deeply ingrained in religion? Why did the Cross become a rallying symbol for persecution? How does one man who loves the Church confront its history of crusade and conquest? This is the story of James Carroll, a former Catholic priest on a journey to confront his past and uncover the roots of religiously inspired violence and war. The film brings the history of religious intolerance to life, tracing it as a source of the fanaticism that threatens the world today. At its core, Constantine's Sword is a compelling personal narrative-a kind of detective story-as one man uncovers the dark areas of his own past, searching for a better future.
