Lost Christianities: Christian Scriptures and the Battles over Authentication
Once again, Professor Bart D. Ehrman, the James A. Gray Distinguished Professor at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, offers us this series of 24 lectures that explores and considers the varieties of belief and practice in the early days of Christianity, before the church had decided what was theologically acceptable and determined which books should be included in its canon of Scripture.
This class will be facilitated by Peggy Stoll and will meet in the Welcome Room at 9:30 am on the 1st and 3rd Sundays of every month. Please join us to learn more about early Christianity and their sacred texts.
