CH001 - Christianity in History to 1550

In this unit we’ll be learning about the story of Christianity from New Testament times until the Reformation era, particularly focusing on the Western tradition of the church. We’ll discover the people, movements and ideas that made an impact – for better or worse.

From the doctrine of the Trinity to Luther’s Ninety Five Theses, via people like St Francis of Assisi and events like the Crusades, we’ll see how people have followed Jesus in the past and reflect on how we can emulate their successes and learn from their failures.
