Christianity began as a small Jewish group of followers of Jesus and over the course of six centuries came to be the imperial religion of the Roman Empire, dominating both political and cultural discourse. We will consider the interaction between Christianity and imperial power, the creation of a specifically Christian culture, the origins and development of the ascetic movement within Christianity, Christian conflicts with Jews and pagans, and the ways that Christian ritual and sacred space changed the landscape of the Mediterranean world. During the course, we will read about a wide variety of Christian authors and groups, some mainstream, some not. Our purpose is to understand the development of Christianity in its historical context in late antiquity.
