The history of ancient Christianity is an endlessly fascinating topic. Don Fox and Steve Thoreson are facilitating this meet up to review the history of Rome, religions of the Roman empire, Gnosticism, Mystery cults, history of Christian persecutions, biographies of major Christians, the history of the Bible and many other related topics. If you ever wanted to sort out Eusebius from Clement, or Constantine from Diocletian, or the Vulgate from the Septuagint, then this group is for you.

Previous biblical knowledge is not required to participate.

We will be meeting every third Sunday. Each meeting a specific topic will be covered. Check the comment section to find out what the current readings and topics of discussion are.

The topic this month is persecution. While we’ll start off with the persecution of Christians by pagans, we’ll also discuss the persecution of Christians by other Christians and the persecution of pagans by Christians. A very good book on the subject is “The Myth of Persecution” by Candida Moss. I recommend you read it if you can.
This is an amazing & eye opening topic. Hope to see you there!
