The Diversity of Early Christianity

Lecture no. 1 from the course: Lost Christianities: Christian Scriptures and the Battles over Authentication

 The Diversity of Early Christianity

Taught by Professor Bart D. Ehrman | 31 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Philosophy & Religion Courses

Modern Christianity is widely diverse in its social structures, beliefs and practices, but this diversity is mild compared to the first three centuries A.D., when Christians disagreed on such basic issues as how many gods there were, or whether Jesus was human, divine, both, or neither.

This is an excellent course that explores the early Christian communities and their diverse belief systems. Dr. Erhman is an excellent, brilliant scholar who holds your attention through the course. If you want to have an all encompassing tour of the early church, this is the course for you.
