Extreme Christianity in the 2nd and 3rd Centuries Lecture # 9 Nov. 17, 2019 11:45 am. To 1:00 pm. Some Christians in the age of persecution willingly accepted martyrdom as a witness to Christ and their hope in the resurrection from the dead. Others composed apologetic literature, seeking a place in the intellectual world of the empire. But there were other manifestations of the Christian religion in the 2nd and 3rd centuries, even those that can be considered extreme. The…

The Shaping of Orthodoxy Lecture # 10 Nov. 24, 2019 11:45 am. To 1:00 pm. We have surveyed some of the variety to be found in 2nd- and 3rdcentury Christianity: prophetic utterances and promises in Montanism; wonder-working in the apocryphal acts, mystical ascent in Gnosticism. But when does diversity become deviance? When are more definite boundaries required? In the middle of the 2nd century, at least partly in response to extreme impulses, Christianity took on a clearer shape. This period…

Institutional Development before Constantine Lecture # 11 Dec. 1, 2019 11:45 am. To 1:00 pm. History is not merely a matter of great men and the struggle of big ideas. It involves social structures and social dynamics. We have already seen that the 2nd. and 3rd. centuries were when Christianity became a more definite and visible institution. In this lecture, we’ll focus on the development of such social structures and dynamics during the same period. In particular, we’ll take a…

The Beginnings of Christian Philosophy Lecture # 12 Dec. 8, 2019 11:45 am. To 1:00 pm. In the 2nd and 3rd centuries, four distinct “ways of being religious” that had already characterized Greco-Roman culture emerged with greater clarity within Christianity. These were: the way of participation in divine benefits, the way of stabilizing the world, the way of transcending the world, and the way of moral transformation. If we define religion as “a way of life organized around experiences and…

Imperial Politics and Religion Lecture # 13 Dec. 15, 2019 11:45 am. To 1:00 pm. In the first part of the course, we saw how Christianity, beginning as an inauspicious sect of Judaism, grew—despite hostility and persecution— into a significant player in the larger world, with strong internal organization, an empire-wide system of communication, and an increasing confidence in both its moral and intellectual superiority. We now take a major turn in the course, just as Christianity took a major…

Constantine and the Established Church Lecture # 14 Dec. 22, 2019 11:45 am. To 1:00 pm. In the previous lecture, we traced the steps by which the Roman Empire turned from a persecutor of the Christian religion to its protector and patron. The personal religious convictions of the imperial patron, Constantine, were never entirely clear, yet he seemed genuinely devoted to the cause of Christianity. As head of state, he showed significant patronage to the Christian religion and referred to…

The Extension of Christian Culture Lecture # 15 Jan. 5, 2020 11:45 am. To 1:00 pm. As we have seen, the effects of being established as the official religion of the Roman Empire went far beyond safety, legitimacy, or even privilege. The emperor and the state bureaucracy were intimately involved with the internal affairs of the church. Christianity had become a public political religion in precisely the fashion of the Greco- Roman polytheism that preceded it. In this lecture, we…

Monasticism as Radical Christianity Lecture # 16 Jan. 12, 2020 11:45 am. To 1:00 pm. The new conditions of Christians within an imperially approved and sponsored religion were not regarded by all as uniformly positive. With legitimacy, benefaction, and privilege came both security and prosperity at the material level. This meant that Christianity was increasingly “conformed to the world,” rather than its critic, and the bearer of culture, rather than countercultural. The response of some Christians was the desire to…

The Emergence of Patriarchal Centres Lecture # 17 Jan. 19, 2020 11:45 am. To 1:00 pm. In the last lecture, we saw that monasticism provided an outlet for those Christians in the 4th century who rejected the new comfortable circumstances of the church and sought a more rigorous mode of discipleship. Now, we return to those less heroically inclined, indeed, to those deeply enmeshed in the new cultural reality that was an established Christianity. In this lecture, we consider the…

Theological Crisis and Council—The Trinity Lecture # 18 Jan. 26, 2020 11:45 am. To 1:00 pm. The territorial rivalries we discussed in the last lecture provide the backdrop to the tumultuous theological controversies concerning God and Christ that threatened to fragment the newly “triumphant” Christianity in the 4th and 5th centuries. In this lecture and the next, we will try to explain these controversies as they developed over time. We will consider first the question of the Trinity: Who or…

Such controversies continued with even greater ferocity in the 5th. and 6th centuries but now with a focus on Christology: the nature of Jesus Christ, the God-man. In this debate, we can see the same combination of elements as…

The Distinctive Issues of the Latin West Lecture # 20 Feb. 9, 2020 11:45 am. To 1:00 pm. The 4th and 5th centuries, dominated by theological disputes over the Trinity and Christology in the East, also saw the development of a flourishing Latin Christianity, especially in Italy, Gaul, and North Africa—one that also included controversies. Although Latin authors contributed to the larger theological debates, the issues distinctive to the West tended to be less theoretical than pastoral and ecclesial: Who…

Expansion beyond the Boundaries of Empire Lecture # 21 March 1, 2020 11:45 am. To 1:00 pm. In the last lecture, we saw that Ambrose, Jerome, and Augustine provided a transition from the classical to the medieval world in the West, and we will shortly follow that transition to Christendom. But in this lecture, we note the changing realities that Christianity needed to address because of its engagement with a variety of languages and cultures on the fringes of and…

The Court of Justinian and Byzantine Christianity Lecture # 22 March 8, 2020 11:45 am. To 1:00 pm. The emperor Justinian I (b. 483–d. 565) can be considered as pivotal a figure in the history of the Roman Empire as Constantine, both as the last of the “Roman” emperors and as the shaper of the Byzantine Empire. A man of astonishing energy and vision, he accomplished magnificent things in his effort to restore the Roman Empire to its former glory.…

The Rise of Islam and the Threat of Iconoclasm Lecture # 23 March 15, 2020 11:45 am. To 1:00 pm. In 540, Justinian had accomplished what he thought was an “eternal peace” with the Persian Empire through the payment of tribute. But the peace won by Justinian was illusory: There was constant war with the Persians from 572 to 591, and the Byzantine Empire progressively found its earlier gains taken away. Between 614 and 625, the Persians took over Damascus…

Eastern Orthodoxy—Holy Tradition Lecture # 24 March 22, 2020 11:45 am. To 1:00 pm. After centuries of religious struggle, Christianity in the Byzantine Empire settled into a long period of stability. The conflict over the nature of Christ ended in a state of resolution fairly close to the Chalcedonian position, and the violent turmoil unleashed by iconoclasm finally ceased. The pressure exerted by external enemies made the Byzantine Empire more compact and inward-turning. Constantinople remained the greatest city in the…

From Roman Empire to Holy Roman Empire Lecture # 25 March 29, 2020 11:45 am. To 1:00 pm. This lecture marks the second great transition in our historical survey of Christianity; here, we move from imperial Christianity to medieval Christianity, from the Roman Empire to the Holy Roman Empire. For the most part, this section of the course turns from the East to the West, where we find the Latin language instead of Greek, the pope instead of patriarchs, tribal…

Benedictine Monasticism and Its Influence Lecture # 26 April 5, 2020 11:45 am. To 1:00 pm. In the last lecture, we saw the importance of the Frankish conquests and the consolidation of Frankish rule under Charlemagne as the Holy Roman Emperor, which involved, as well, a commitment to Catholicism and to the bishop of Rome. We have also sketched the basics of feudalism as the political-cultural context for medieval Christianity, and we saw briefly how monasteries both fit and caused…

Evangelization of Western Europe Lecture # 27 April 19, 2020 11:45 am. To 1:00 pm. In the past few lectures, we have identified important elements in the formation of a Catholic Europe: At the political level, we saw the Frankish conquests and consolidation and the commitment of the Merovingians to Catholicism and to the papacy. At the religious/ cultural level, we saw how Benedictine monasticism fit within the manorial economic system and provided a place for the learning and dissemination…

The Great Divorce between East and West Lecture # 28 April 19, 2020 11:45 am. To 1:00 pm. In the 11th century, relations between Christianity in the East and in the West, between Orthodoxy and Catholicism, were severed and remain so to the present. The two earliest forms of Christianity have been in a state of schism for more than 1,000 years. The symbolic date for the split is 1054, but as with so many divorces, this one built on…

Monastic Reform Lecture # 29 May 3, 2020 11:45 am. To 1:00 pm. The split between East and West in the 11th century occasioned by the filioque controversy shows how independent the Catholic tradition, headed by the pope, had become from the imperial Orthodox tradition. In the West, the world shaped by popes, kings, and monks was called simply “Christendom,” and it was a world that was pervasively and profoundly Christian in coloration if not always in character. From the…

Cathedrals and Chapters Lecture # 30 May 10, 2020 11:45 am. To 1:00 pm. All across Europe, the 11th and 12th centuries saw Christians undertaking ambitious building projects that revealed both selfconfidence and the economic means to take on truly large projects. The weather was good; the crops were substantial; the population was growing; and a sense of new possibility was in the air. One expression of this ambitious construction was the castle, and a second, as we saw in…

The Crusades Lecture # 31 May 24, 2020 11:45 am. To 1:00 pm. It can be argued that the 11th through 13th centuries represent the high water mark of the European civilization called Christendom, shaped by specifically Christian values and institutions. As much as in the monasteries with their schools and the cathedrals with their chapters, and as much as in the universities that we will talk about in the next lecture, the vibrancy and vision of this Christian society…

Papal Revolution Lecture # 32 May 31, 2020 11:45 am. To 1:00 pm. The era of great building projects and military expeditions was also an era in which the role of the papacy was asserted more forcefully than ever before, both as a political and a religious power. The papacy of the 12th and 13th centuries was also intimately involved with changes internal to the life of the church. Reform of the secular clergy was needed, and new forms of…

Universities and Theology Lecture # 33 June 7, 2020 11:45 am. To 1:00 pm. One of the most impressive signs of a mature Christian culture in the High Middle Ages was the development of universities. As we have seen, the desire for higher learning within Christianity was never completely lost, even during the most chaotic periods of life in the West. Universities, though, were a new invention in the West; they emerged when they did because of the convergence of…

The Great Plague Lecture # 34 June 14, 2020 11:45 am. To 1:00 pm. The self-confident ventures of the High Middle Ages—the Crusades, cathedrals, and universities—were followed by a period of calamity in the 14 century that had negative effects on the church and society. The first devastating event of this century was the great famine of 1315– 1317, brought on by a general shift from a moderate to a older climate. A mere nine years later, the plague hit,…

Corruption and the Beginnings of Reform Lecture # 35 June 14, 2020 11:45 am. To 1:00 pm. Throughout its history, Christianity has had the ability to generate reform movements based on the conviction that its high ideals were being compromised by actual practice. Early monasticism, for example, can be seen as a form of organized resistance to what the monks perceived to be the compromised position of the church after Christianity became the imperial religion. Later, such popes as Gregory…
