About This Course

The second part of the ten short lectures will give you a brief glance at the many different factors and events that shaped the spread of Christianity over the globe. Both internal conflicts within the church and the changing pressures upon it from outside will be mentioned. It is hoped that this course will motivate you to study more in-depth the issues and debates, past and present, that have shaped the many variations of the Christian movement since it began.
