This course is an introduction to the history of Christianity. We will explore the people, places, movements, and events that have contributed to making Christianity the most widespread and diverse faith tradition in the world. Along the way, we will ask two key questions: (1) has Christianity been a force for good in the world, and if so, (2) how have Christian people properly enacted Jesus's command to love God and their neighbors in different times and places?
