This curated playlist is filled with stories driven by one of greatest imperatives of individuals, nations and cultures through history: the search for spiritual experience and religious truth. The lessons of ancient texts, including the Bible and the Koran, have shaped our politics and our societies. They have led to intractable cultural conflicts and war. We struggle to reconcile them with the findings of science and history. And yet, the human journey will no doubt always be defined by the search for faith.
