Athletes of God

Lecture no. 5 from the course: The Early Middle Ages

 Athletes of God

Taught by Professor Philip Daileader | 31 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online History Courses

With the conversion of Constantine and the end of imperial persecutions, and with martyrdom no longer readily available, those seeking new ways to excel in their faith turn to new ways of achieving Christian heroism.

Dr. Daileader is a perfectly competent deliverer of the lecture material. But given his clear awkwardness in front of a camera and perhaps a group of students, I find it difficult to believe that was awarded a Fellowship Award in teaching excellence from William and Mary. These lectures are 15 years old, so perhaps he's already taken this advice to heart, but I think he would be one of those people to benefit from taking a few deep breaths or imagining his audience naked before stepping into the lecture hall.
