Virtual Roundtable: Beyond Christ: Before (and after) Constantine
By Alexis James Waggoner | 1/29/20
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.
About a hundred people joined us live to hear and interact with 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.
If you missed this recent roundtable the replay is available here.
