Topics in Early Church History?
My fall semester class on Early Church History started last night. My prof is very enthusiastic: this is her favorite period of history and her favorite class to teach. So that should be fun! We have 12 people in the class, from a wide variety of Christian traditions, at various places in our degree programs.
For this class, I will be writing two 6-7 page papers. They can be on any topic that can be explored in the context of the first five centuries of Christianity for which there is primary source material available – and she’ll work with us to find appropriate primary sources. (And “available” here effectively means “available in English.”)
So that’s a wide open field, and I’m taking suggestions. Is there something you’ve always been curious about? Convince me it’s really interesting, and maybe I’ll research it for you.
Some ideas I have so far:
