History of the Church I: The Early and Medieval Church | Dominican University College

History of The Church : The Early and Medieval Church

This course focuses on the emergence of the Church and its development during the first twelve centuries, using a historical timeframe as a structure. To better understand the relationship between the Church and the broader cultural and socio-political context, students will explore key events, personalities and resources relevant to the study of Church history, as well as a number of topics including the Eastern Church traditions and the birth of Islam and its effect on Christian history. The pedagogical approach includes lectures and experiential activities, with a combination of individual and group work. Groups are expected to attend a service in an Eastern-tradition Church and present collaboratively on their experience in class. Individually, students will deepen a particular topic or important spiritual text, demonstrating solid research and personal reflection skills. The assessment plan for this course includes attendance, participation in class, oral presentations and written assignments.
