There are three main branches of
Christianity: the Roman Catholics, the Orthodox and the Protestant. Our map is
color coded to show those countries where Christianity is represented in significant
numbers and where each branch is prevalent.
C = Catholic; O = Orthodox; P = Protestant
the darker colors represent those countries with a higher concentration of Christians.
To put this in perspective, compare this map to a similar
one, showing the distribution of all the major world religions. (Because this
map is so large, you will be able to view it in its own window. Note: the window
can be increased or decreased in size to allow viewing the map in full resolution.)
