HIS600—North American Church History

View outline (PDF)   Instructor(s): The Rev. Dr. Brian Thorpe

This course will explore the history of Christian churches in North America. The written histories of the churches will be studied in dialogue with the social context of such histories and the reflections of both church and context in popular culture. There will be a particular emphasis on the experience of those on the margins of power and their often unwritten contributions to the fabric of the Christian movement in North America.

This course is available via Zoom for off-site students
