Unorganized Religion: Christianity Before Constantine

5 Tuesdays from 7:00-8:00 p.m. Starting August 25

This five week class surveys the development of the Christian Church from the coming of the Holy Spirit on Pentecost to the declaration of Christianity as the state religion of the Roman Empire. Many elements of church that we think of as “ancient” aren’t really ancient. We think of monks chanting, soaring cathedrals, and verbose theological creeds. But a thousand years before all of that developed, there were many factions of Christian thought spread out across the slowly dying Roman Empire. Politics, heresies, and persecution are just some of the juicy topics we will cover in learning about how the Christian Church got where it is today.
