Virtual Roundtable: Beyond Christ: Before (and after) Constantine
By Alexis James Waggoner | 1/10/20
Westar’ Christianity Seminar aims to rewrite the history of early Christianity. Now, as the Seminar’s work of research, dialogue, and debate enters its second phase, Westar scholars will look at the history and practices of what came to be known as the “early church” — but in actuality was many disparate movements trying to understand and adapt the teachings of Jesus to their own experience and context.
Join us as we talk with the co-chairs of the Seminar, Lillian Larsen and Jason BeDuhn, about how this work has changed the understanding of early Christianity, and where the research continues to lead. We’ll talk about women in the early church, ritual practices, early beliefs and theology, and much more.
Join us Monday, January 27th at 8pm ET, by signing up here. If you can’t join live, the replay will be available after the event but be sure to register so you get the link to watch the recording.
