Synopsis

Oxford-trained professor Fr. David Meconi transports you to the world of the early Christians, where you will meet the great theologians who indelibly shaped Christianity.

Join Fr. David Meconi, multiple award-winning professor and Oxford-educated theologian on a journey through the most formative years of Christianity.

Through 10 erudite and lively lectures, you will explore the formative centuries of the Church (100-800 C.E.) and the great figures whose lives and writings inspired generations of later thinkers and believers.

Along the way, you will gain a richer understanding of Christianity today—its faith, traditions, scriptures, and theology.

One of the recurring lessons of Church history emerges from the way in which Christians have historically responded to both internal and external challenges and developments. From these lectures, you will gain insight into pivotal ecumenical councils, theological debates, and the lives of Eastern and Western Fathers of the Church.

Fr. Meconi’s scholarly meditation on moments within the life of the Church takes on the delicacy and precision of a well-executed portrait—proving that the pulse of the ancient faith still throbs inside the hearts of Christians today.

This course is part of the Learn25 collection.
