About the Authors
  • This series offers a comprehensive chronological account of the development of Christianity in all its aspects ­ theological, intellectual, social, political, regional, global ­ from its beginnings to the present day. Each volume makes a substantial contribution in its own right to the scholarship of its period and the complete History constitutes a major work of academic reference. Far from being merely a history of Western European Christianity and its offshoots, the History aims to provide a global perspective. Eastern and Coptic Christianity are given full consideration from the early period onwards, and later, African, Far Eastern, New World, South Asian and other non-European developments in Christianity receive proper coverage. The volumes cover popular piety and non-formal expressions of Christian faith and treat the sociology of Christian formation, worship and devotion in a broad cultural context. The question of relations between Christianity and other major faiths is also kept in sight throughout.

    • A comprehensive scholarly overview of the history of Christianity from its origins to the present day
    • Highlights the intellectual and cultural diversity present in Christianity throughout its history
    • Locates Christianity in its wider social, political and global contexts
