HIST 501

History of Christianity I

(A) (Pre-recorded Distance Education Option Available)

This course is an invitation to encounter the Story of God’s people through time. As a learning community we survey the history of the Church from the end of the New Testament era (ca. 100 A.D.) through to the middle of the Reformation (c1535).  Most students come to Regent College having had little exposure to Christian History, especially Late Antiquity and the Medieval period. This course introduces this history to those who are unfamiliar with the story but it also provides an interpretive perspective to challenge those who have already studied the subject.  The title History of Christianity, rather than Church History, is employed to suggest that the course is concerned not just with Church organization and practice, but with the history of ideas, popular religion and the impact of Christianity on society. This course places the history of the Christian Church in the context of political and societal development and it considers the complex interplay of historical factors shaping the life and character of the Church.
