9781854246899: A Public Faith: From Constantine to the Medieval World AD 312-600 (Monarch History of the Church)

Historical survey covering early church persecution of Christians through the triumph of Constantine

As volume two opens, persecution of Christians is coming to an end with the triumph of Constantine. Soon legal measures protected church interests. Clergy are exempted from taxation; Christian pastors are appointed as military chaplains. But inclusion brings its own dangers as the temptations to compromise grow stronger. The following centuries will see painful heart-searching as church and state grow closer, and the doctrinal wrangles of the early church continue.

From the Back Cover:

The Baker History of the Church is a multivolume series by world-renowned historians and theologians. Each comprehensive volume offers an evenhanded and readable assessment of the main strands of Christianity within its period. A Public Faith covers the period AD 312-600. These centuries saw the official favoring of the Christian faith in the Roman Empire and the expansion of Christianity in western Europe as well as in the Mediterranean region, Asia, and Africa. This era also witnessed the fragmentation of the political world in which the church began. Examining the challenges and opportunities generated by change, consolidation, and growth, Ivor J. Davidson assesses the complex but fascinating ways in which Christianity developed during these dramatic times. Praise for The Birth of the Church: "Well written with masterful control of developments, Davidson's volume is a treat: history at its finest."-Frederick W. Norris, professor of world Christianity, Emmanuel School of Religion "An impressive launch for a promising new series!"-Timothy George, executive editor, Christianity Today "This judiciously crafted, ecumenical survey of early Christianity offers just the right combination of social, liturgical, institutional, and intellectual history."-Douglas A. Sweeney, associate professor of church history, Trinity Evangelical Divinity School "Here we have an account of the early church that is both readable and informative, without being simplistic."-Gerald Bray, Anglican professor of Divinity, Beeson Divinity School Ivor J. Davidson is professor of theology at the University of Otago, New Zealand. He has written extensively on the history and theology of the early church. John D. Woodbridge is research professor of church history and the history of Christian thought at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School. David F. Wright is professor of patristic and Reformed Christianity at the University of Edinburgh. Tim Dowley has written and edited many books, including The Lion Handbook to the History of Christianity.
