Nicene Christianity is the fourth unit of The Romans, year two in the Old Western Culture curriculum on the Great Books.
Romans: Nicene Christianity introduces students to the creeds and councils of the early Church and the fascinating story of how they came about. Wesley Callihan guides students through Augustine’s Confessions and City of God, and selections from John Chrysostom, Athanasius, and Boethius. Learn how the late Roman Christians viewed themselves as the last remnants of Paganism fell, and the Christian defence mounted by Augustine against the accusations that Rome fell because she abandoned the Pagan gods. Learn how Athanasius influenced the Council of Nicea as the Church gathered to discuss the deity of Christ.
Includes 12 lectures, a Student Workbook & Answer Key (PDF), and a Guide to the Art booklet.
