Animated maps

The School of Divinity was been awarded two grants to develop a series of animated maps for use in teaching. These have been successfully used in two first level courses - History of Christianity as a World Religion 1a and 1b.

The maps created for History of Christianity as a World Religion 1a were funded by the University of Edinburgh Principals Elearning Fund and the maps created for History of Christianity as a World Religion 1b by The Higher Education Academy Philosophy and Religious Studies Subject area.
