ADTH 5541 Understanding Church Through the Ages (Spring: 4 )
This course considers key moments in ecclesiology, the Christian community's self-understanding. Beginning with its Jewish Christian roots and the broader Hellenistic world, and continuing through the patristic, medieval, reformation, and enlightenment periods, into the nineteenth and early twentieth century movements which contributed to the First and Second Vatican Councils. Lectures will review the church's history as illustrated by relevant documents of each era. There will be weekly reports, discussion and a short paper.
