Overview:
In this course we will examine the history of Anglicanism, starting with the introduction of Christianity in the 100s or 200s A.D. to what was then Roman Britain. We will follow this history to explore how Christianity in the British Isles developed over the next 1800 years. It started as one among other systems of religious belief in those lands, and it developed into a small national church and then into an international communion of regional churches, a communion which, along with Eastern Orthodoxy and Roman Catholicism, is now one of the largest Christian traditions in the world. We will mark key people, ideas, moments, structures, movements, and dynamics which have shaped and continue to shape Anglicanism. Our journey through this history will give us a richer understanding of what Anglicanism has been, what it is, and where it might be going.
