This course focuses on the study of a number of texts belonging to the general category of early Christian literature. Texts to be read include works representative of various theological tendencies and literary forms. The study of each work will consider its form and genre, its relation to the New Testament, and its connection to the contemporary religio-philosophical world. In addition, the historical context of each text will be examined in light of the history and development of Christianity in the first three centuries.
