Drawing on the example of Provence's evolution from the Pagan era to the first evangelization of the region, the class will explore the theology and religious practices of the first centuries of Europe's Christianity.
This course will examine the conflicts, individuals, social movements, and theologies that shaped Christianity during its formative period, the second through sixth centuries. How did this religion become the official religion of the Roman Empire? What implications did this "success" have for Roman society and the evolution of Christianity?
Issues we will study include: the spread of Christianity throughout the Mediterranean world; martyrdoms and persecutions; Christian and Jewish relations; hierarchy and power; heresy and orthodoxy; asceticism and the body; gender and class.
