RLG203H1: Christianity



This course equips students to understand how and why Christianity has come to exert such influence on the world around us. We will trace the history of Christianity from the early Jesus movement to its emergence as the official religion of the Roman Empire, and through its medieval forms and colonial expansion into one of the world’s largest religions. This introductory course centres on themes such as political authority, Christian mysticism and the arts, debates about sexuality, and visions of justice and redemption. No familiarity with the Bible, Christianity, or the academic study of religion is presupposed.
