Most historical theology studies follow Christian beliefs chronologically, discussing notable doctrinal developments for all areas of theology according to their historical appearance. While this may be good history, it can make for confusing theology, with the classic theological doctrines scattered throughout various time periods, movements, and controversies.
In this Historical Theology 1 course, the first seven of fifteen theological topics are addressed by looking at the historical development of theology by a topical-chronological arrangement, setting out the history one doctrine at a time. This approach concentrates on one tenet of Christianity and its formulation in the early church through the Middle Ages, Reformation, and post-Reformation era, and finally into the modern period.
