Six unaired episodes of Father Robert Barron’s television series “Catholicism” will air on the EWTN Global Catholic Network during the months of November and December.
Fr. Barron, a priest of the Archdiocese of Chicago, visited more than 50 locations in 16 different countries over two years to produce the 10-part documentary about Catholic faith and history.
He tells the story of Catholicism around the world using art, architecture, literature, music and all the riches of Catholic tradition.
"The filming of the ‘Catholicism’ series was one of the most exciting and rewarding periods of my Life,” Fr. Barron said in September. “Our team traveled the globe to capture some of the beauty, truth, and texture of Catholicism.”
