This unit seeks to identify and explore defining moments in the life of the Christian church via a study of the events, personalities, institutions, movements and ideas which brought them about. Such moments will be set in the context of the challenges and opportunities facing the church at different periods since the seventh century. There will be an examination of the ways in which the institutional church as well as Christian individuals and communities responded, and the motivations for such responses.
