Prerequisite: 15 hours in history or instructor's permission. This course examines the history of Christian historical writing from antiquity (Old Testament-New Testament foundations) to the early modern era. Topics will include: the limitations of the historical method, objectivity and subjectivity, miracles and the historical method, creedal confessions and the writing of Church History, and the challenges of rationalism and skepticism. Special attention will be given to the 'Quest for the Historical Jesus'. Lastly, students will also learn some 'hands on' classroom methodologies for how to teach Church History in both religious and secular schools. This course fulfills the historiography requirement for the history major.
