Christianity is an Abrahamic religion that began as a Jewish sect in the mid-1st century. Originating in the Levant region of the Middle East, it quickly spread to Syria, Mesopotamia, Asia Minor and Egypt. It grew in size and influence over a few centuries, and by the end of the 4th century had become the official state church of the Roman Empire, replacing other forms of religion practiced under Roman rule. During the Middle Ages, most of the remainder of Europe was Christianized, with Christians also being a sometimes large religious minority in the Middle East, North Africa, Ethiopia and parts of India. Following the Age of Discovery, Christianity spread to the Americas, Australasia, sub-Saharan Africa, and the rest of the world through missionary work and colonization. Christianity has played a prominent role in the shaping of Western civilization.

Definition: Name: Leonidas I (Λεωνίδας)Dates: Mid 6th century B.C. - 480Father: (Agiad) King Anaxandridas of SpartaOccupation: (Agiad) Spartan King Leonidas was a 5th century B.C. Spartan military king who bravely led a small force of Greeks -- mostly Spartan (the famous 300), but also Thespians and Thebans -- against the much larger Persian army of Xerxes, at the pass of Thermopylae, in 480 B.C. during the Persian Wars. In his book on the Persian Wars, Greco-Persian Wars [it's the same war, but with a less biased name, since 'Persian', as opposed to 'Greco-Persian' marks the Persians as the enemy], Peter Green suggests only the Thebans and Thespians accompanied Leonidas into battle because they were the only other Greeks who volunteered.
