Church History I: First Centuries | Dominican University College

This course intends to study the beginnings of the Church, and its relationship to the original Jewish milieu. More precisely, the emergence of a Christian identity and its place within the Pagan milieu will be evaluated through the following progression: 1) from confrontation (critique and persecutions) 2) to cohabitation and tolerance (conversions, acceptance of classical culture) 3) until the rise of the Christian Empire, 4) to the reign of Pope Gregory the Great. The first internal dissensions and Gnosticism will then be reviewed before investigating the internal life of the Church, and the development of her institutions, ministries and liturgy.
