This is Season 2 of Church Historia! In this season, we’re going to go back in time to the early days of Christianity and look at how Christianity grew into what we recognize today. In particular, we’ll do a deep dive into what happens when Christianity becomes connected with (secular) power. Starting with Constantine and going through the early Medieval period, Steph will share several of the major controversies of early Christianity (Arianism, Monophysitism, and iconoclasm) as well as its spread through Europe. As we look at each area together, we’ll explore how emperors, kings, nobles, popes, and patriarchs shaped the discussions around doctrine and orthodoxy. Along the way we’ll encounter the variety of the older threads of Christianity and be prompted by their stories to look at our own in new ways.
