Explore the history of the Church in this 10-week introductory course. 

This course covers the history of the Christian Church in a broadly chronological manner. Each of the sessions will focus on a particular period of church history from the first century to the present day. Within each session, time will be given not only to key dates, events, individuals and movements, but also to art, architecture, liturgy, and, where possible, music. The course will focus on Western church history, but include material relating to the Orthodox Churches and to Christianity in Africa, Asia and South America, as well as Europe and North America.
