This outstanding textbook offers an original history of Christian thought, asking what it has meant over the centuries to participate in the religion of the Word made flesh. Traces Christian ideas, conversations, experiences and practices from the first century through to the dawn of modernity at the end of the eighteenth century. Presents an inclusive history, considering the critical roles of women and religious 'others'- dissenting Christians, Jews and Muslims - in shaping Christian thought. Sets Christian ideas in the context of conversations, controversies and concrete circumstances. Demonstrates the importance of liturgical and devotional exercises to the practice of Christianity. Treats words, images, music and architecture all as primary evidence of Christian traditions. Is accompanied by a CD Rom containing hundreds of visuals to support the theories and examples discussed throughout the volume.
