This LCLI deals with the difficult transition of the church from being a religious cult on the margins to the lone religion of the empire. It covers the period of time roughly between 280-380 AD, examining such issues as how the scriptures were canonized, the evaluation of heresy and orthodoxy, and whether the Roman Empire was “Christianized” or Christianity was “Romanized.” An opportunity to investigate the roots of the church we know today!
