The focus of this course is on Christianity as a world movement, to identify formative aspects of the Christian movement in service to contemporary communities of faith, but also to identify and challenge models of interpretation in the history of Christianity. This course surveys the history of Christianity as a world movement by exploring the formation and development of the Ancient and Medieval periods. We pursue issues of identity and method within the Christian traditions in order to trace the origins of theological concepts that continue to inform contemporary Christian communities. We will track types of theology and movements of renewal within the Church. Theological texts, terms, and traditions are placed in historical context. We will introduce aspects of the interrelationship of Christianity with Judaism and Islam.
