“Heroes & Heretics in the Early Church”

As the saying goes, “those who don’t know history are doomed to repeat it.” This spring’s Quest course focuses on the value of knowing ancient church history, while considering both the heroes and the heresies of the 4th and 5th centuries A.D. Through the drama of emperors, councils, creeds, bishops, priests, monks, and lay people, we will discover the heart of the Trinitarian and Christological controversies that shape our faith even today. For what was at stake, for heroes and heretics alike, was nothing less than the clarity of the gospel itself. Our sessions will be led by Alex Marque, who is a PhD candidate in the history of biblical interpretation at Concordia Seminary in St. Louis, Missouri, and this semester’s full-time visiting instructor at Concordia Lutheran Seminary, Edmonton.
