This course offers a comparative examination of the many forms of global Christianity over the past two thousand years. Beginning with the ancient Jewish, Greek, and Roman contexts of early Christianity and continues through the present. Students will become familiar with Asian, African, Latin American, European, and North American Christianities, and explore  several themes, including: use of sacred texts and ritual experiences, the relationship between Christianity and politics, and cultural aspects such marriage and sexuality. Students will also consider Christianity as a series of global systems organized around missions, migration, trade, and warfare.
