Award-winning professor Fr. David Meconi transports you to the world of the early Christians, where you will meet the great theologians who indelibly shaped Christianity. To understand Christiany today—faith, traditions, scriptures and theology—we must first understand its past. An Oxford-trained professor, David Meconi, S.J., examines the formative centuries of the Church (100–800 C.E.) and the great figures whose lives and writings inspired generations of later thinkers and believers. One of the recurring lessons of Church history emerges from the way in which Christians have historically responded to both internal and external challenges and developments. From these lectures, you will gain insight into pivotal ecumenical councils, theological debates, and the lives of Eastern and Western Fathers of the Church. Fr. Meconi's scholarly meditation on moments within the life of the Church takes on the delicacy and precision of a well-executed portrait—proving that the pulse of the ancient faith still throbs inside the hearts of Christians today.
