Description: This class covers the history of the Christian church, from the Pentecost to the middle of the 20th century.  Along the way we'll examine the early church, the seven ecumenical councils, the Great Schism between Catholicism and Orthodoxy, the age of scholasticism, the Protestant Reformation, and the rise of modernism.  The overarching framework of the class will be provided by The Story of Christianity, co-written by a Protestant minister and a Catholic priest.  This will be fleshed out with primary sources from Eusebius, Athanasius, Augustine, St. Benedict, Aquinas, Luther, Wesley, and others.  Students will read and analyze these texts, identify key events, people and places in the history of the Church, and debate the key theological doctrines at the heart of various councils and schisms.  Students should expect 3 hours of homework each week.  This class is equivalent to one high school credit of world history, though parents can treat it as an English credit instead.
