Church History 201 Guidelines

Welcome to Church History 201.

Believe it or not, this is the exact place where Luther first posted the 94 thesis. We convinced him to add one.

This is the forum where the Church and its actions in history can be discussed. Since CH201, like the other fora in the History department, is not limited to participation along lines of theology, all may post here. This means that anything like Ecclesiology can be discussed without the restrictions of the Ecclesiology forum, and without the atmosphere of Ecclesiology 201 or the Apologetics-specific forum.

Please keep the Campus Decorum in mind when posting here--while 'belief' restrictions are not in place, common decency is and such is not the area to try disembowel anyone's faith.

If you need to refresh yourself on the decorm, now would be a good time.

Happy 500th anniversary, Reformation!

    I'll pass that on to their pastor, who's caught in the middle.

        If they're Calvinists then is it likely they are Lutherans?

          Not sure if Luther would accept that.

            I didn't think you guys were officially part of that.

            Enter the Church and wash away your sins. For here there is a hospital and not a court of law. Do not be ashamed to enter the Church; be ashamed when you sin, but not when you repent. – St. John Chrysostom

              We're part of the Anglican Communion. So we're beneficiaries if the English Reformation. At my parish, we know where our cork screws are!

                Apparently, our Dean of Academic Affairs (also my Greek Professor) wrote an article on the Reformation for the local newspaper. I found it quite fascinating and thought I'd share it with you all.
