It's the world's single largest religion, with more than 2 billion adherents and a 2,000 year history.


Not all branches of Christianity are the same, however.  How did Christianity come to be the way it is today, with three major traditions (Eastern Orthodox, Roman Catholic and Protestant) and with 25-30,000 Protestant denominations? What are the differences between these traditions and denominations?


Want to know more?  Join Dr. Paul Crawford on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays at 11:00 for HIS 379:  Special Topic: History of Christianity since 1500.    CRN 10879.


This course will trace the history of Christianity from the late Middle Ages through the Reformation and into the early 21st century.  It includes treatment of the Eastern Orthodox, Roman Catholic and Protestant branches of Christianity. Special attention will be paid to the Reformation and to 19th and 20th century Christianity.
