History: Unity, Diversity, Change Over Time

Course Overview

How do we make sense of a faith that develops over time? This course examines key moments of change in the history of the Church, its struggle to maintain unity while respecting the diversities of culture, language, geography, and societies. Special attention will be given to the movement of the early church from the Jewish to the Hellenistic world; the missionary developments and the cultural impact of the Germanic world; the 13th century social changes associated with the Franciscan movement; the mission to the “new world” and China; “Beloved Amazonia” and the challenges of the 21st century.
