Formulation of Christianity by Conflict Through the Ages
|Author: ||Free, Katherine|
These papers examine the formulation of the Christian individual from conflicts with rival ideologies, from periods of repression and persecution, and from changing social realities. The theme is two-pronged: the first is early Christianity and the ancient world, a consideration of the competition of early Christianity with other religions as well as with late classical philosophy; the second is Christianity today in Eastern Europe as it emerges from repression and competition with Communism and the challenges of resurgent nationalism. The papers are from the conference Crisis of Cultures and the Birth of Faith, held at Loyola Marymount University, Los Angeles, in September 1993.
