Early Christianity

Class at Hussite Theological Faculty |


The exam tests the knowledge of two areas of early Christianity, namely selected characters of early Christianity and partial problems. In both cases, emphasis is placed on the student’s extensive knowledge of the subtopic and on the ability to contextualize the selected problem in the first four centuries of Christianity. The student can choose which part of the exam is related to his or her subject of work and completed subjects. The exam also tests the student’s ability to connect the selected topic to his or her professional research and its orientation in the broader context of early Christianity. In both cases, in addition to knowledge of the topic, the student’s knowledge of classical and modern research and the ability to critically reflect on different approaches to the study of the topic will be tested.

Topics on selected persons: Paul in the second century, Irenaeus, Tertullian, Eusebius

Problems of early Christianity: Development of rituals, Christology, canon.
