  11. WI: Christian Arabia

    The question is short and sweet, Muhammad never founds Islam so if the Arab tribes were to unify under a branch of Christianity, which form was the most likely for them to adopt?

    DBWI: Church of England lives past Henry The Eigth

    The Church of England was never really taken seriously during its brief existence under Henry the Eigth. Even many elites and some bishops saw it as just a "Church of Political Punditry", and not helping matters is that to hear most modern historians put it, Henry simply just saw it as a quick...

    WI/PC: A Christian Japan

    As it says on the title. I am far from an expert on either element of the topic (History of Christianity and History of Japan) but the sheer contrast between the significant headway made by the Jesuits in Japan compared to the overall poor results (to the best of my knowledge aniway) in the rest...

    In the absence of Islam, which religion becomes the primary competitor to Christianity?

    Let's keep the point of divergence simple: imagine a world where Muhammad had simply never been born. In such a scenario, what religion is most likely to be the most significant competitor to Christianity in terms of number of followers by the year 2021? Said religion does not have to garner...
