Covers the history of Christianity and its global development over the past five centuries. Going beyond the subject of church history, it deals with the cultural role of Christianity in its widest sense: from the many interactions of Christianity within society, politics, economics, philosophy and the arts, to the myriad of ventures that form civilizations, nations, and communities.
Considered a definitive reference work since the publication of its first edition in 1908, this title covers an unparalleled breadth of subject matter in theological and biblical studies, with up-to-date research and bibliographies covering a wide range of interdisciplinary topics from history, archaeology, liturgy, law, bible, music, visual arts, politics, social sciences, natural sciences, ethics and philosophy.
Focuses on the history of early Christian texts, authors, ideas. Content is intended to bridge the gap between the fields of New Testament studies and patristics, covering the whole period of early Christianity up to 600 CE.
