Early Christianity

"The Most High dwells not in temples made by human hands. As says the prophet: the heavens are my throne, and Earth is my footstool. What house will you build me? What is the place where I rest? Has not my hand made all things?"
Act of the Apostles, Chapter 7, verses 48-50

About the History of Christianity

Theology may seem to make sense or it can seem to be nonsense. The history of religion sheds a great deal of light on human nature and the value of religious organizations. Early Christianity is particularly interesting to me in part because of the attempts by some modern Christian institutions to obscure it.

The essays here will provide you with facts that are borrowed from researchers and historians. Hopefully the perspective and connections that I add will help to illuminate this topic and its relationship to other aspects of civilization.

Many, if not most, early Christians were considered heretics by the orthdox Church consolidated under the Roman Emperor Constantine. These early heresies provide insight into the cultural and theological history of Christianity.
