Early Christianity is the third unit of The Romans, year two in the Old Western Culture curriculum on the Great Books.
Romans: Early Christianity introduces students to the writings of the post-apostolic authors and their historical context. Learn about the persecutions of the early Christians and how they held fast to the faith as chronicled by the historian Eusebius. As the Church becomes more established, learn how early theologians defended the faith against various false doctrines, as was the case with Irenaeus, the Bishop of Lyon. Learn about the writings of The Apologists, Clement of Alexandria, and Justin Martyr, as well as one of the earliest Christian text after the close of the Canon, the Didache.
Includes 12 lectures, a Student Workbook & Answer Key (PDF), and a Guide to the Art booklet.
