Item description for The Church in Ancient Society: From Galilee to Gregory the Great (Oxford History of the Christian Church) by Henry Chadwick...

The Church in Ancient Society provides a narrative history of the first six centuries of the Christian Church. Ancient Greek and Roman society had many gods and an addiction to astrology and divination. This introduction to the period traces the process by which Christianity changed this and so provided a foundation for the modern world: the teaching of Jesus created a lasting community, which grew to command the allegiance of the Roman emperor.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Church in Ancient Society: From Galilee to Gregory the Great (Oxford History of the Christian Church)?

On doctrine and church order  Oct 8, 2004
This is a excellent work, but it only focuses on the development of doctrine and church official structure (the story of their definition is summarised with concision, interpretation being reduced to a minimum, and with themes often split between different chapters).Because of that, the book is a heavy reading.
