PPR358: Early Christianity
This course deals with the formative period of Christian history, from the time of Jesus to the fall of the Roman Empire. It is distinctive in approaching early Christianity from an interdisciplinary standpoint, and in considering it in terms of three dimensions of the religion: 1) Christian institutions (and their relation with wider socio-political contexts), 2) Christian pieties and worship, and 3) Christian thought and the formation of doctrine.
On successful completion of this module students will be able to:
40% coursework and 60% exam.
Lecture (2 hours) weekly, and seminar (1 hour) fortnightly.
S.G. Hall Doctrine and Practice in the Early Church
J. Herrin The Formation of Christendom
