Ancient Christian Study Group

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

    We'll be talking about a book by Karen Jo Torjesen, "When Women Were Priests". Because they were, and bishops too in the first few centuries CE. Book is a bargain on Amazon and being topical possibly in libraries.
