What Will You Learn?

Christianity is the most-followed religion in the world, but how did it get there? From early Christianity onwards, the Christianity Through the Ages Diploma Course takes you through the history and growth of the Christian faith and its practices.

Beginning with early Christianity, the course covers the Jewish Hellenistic Period, Ministry of Jesus, Apostolic Age and Ante-Nicene Period, before moving onto the early Middle Ages, with the Western Missionary Expansion and Byzantine Iconoclasm, and the high Middle Ages, with the Carolingian Renaissance, Monastic Reform, Investiture Controversy, Medieval Inquisition, conversion of the Scandinavians and the Conversion of the Slavs. 

We discuss Eastern Orthodox captivity - delving into the fall of Constantinople, isolation from the West, religious rights under the Ottoman Empire and how the Eastern Church found itself subject to the Turkish system of corruption.
 
We continue on, to the late Middle Ages and the Early Renaissance, as we dive into the Avignon Papacy (1309-1378), Western Schism (1378-1416), John Wycliff and Jan Hus as well as the Italian Renaissance.
 
You’ll discover Early Modern Era Christianity with Revivalism, the Great Awakenings and Restorationism, and Late Modern Era Christianity with Modern Eastern Orthodoxy, Modern Trends in Christian Theology, the Second Vatican Council, Ecumenism and the Pentecostal Movement.
 
We explore the various denominations of Christianity - Catholicism, Protestantism and Eastern Orthodox. We observe Christianity in Britain - looking at Constantine and Augustine, Alfred and the Normans, the Reformation and the English Civil War.
 
The Christianity Through the Ages Diploma Course concludes with a look at Christian practices, including the Sacraments, Liturgical Calendar, symbols, baptism and prayer.

Brilliant set of courses. I recently completed an Egyptology course with them and was so impressed I enrolled into Greek mythology diploma. (I'm doing a masters in classical studies so the Greek mythology course will help). I'd recommend them to anyone who wants to learn new things at their own pace
