History for the Orthodox Christian III: Solomon's Temple through the End of the Apostolic Period

Description:  It almost goes without saying that it is important to study history. Yet, for the Orthodox Christian, the study of history has become an ideological minefield. One can read book after book on world history or western civilization. These textbooks leave the young reader with the impression that Christianity is a tool of oppression, that the sacred history in the Old and New Testaments is more myth than fact. In this class, we will approach the study of history from an Orthodox point of view. Indeed, Orthodoxy will be the foundation for all of our studies.
Times: W 3-3:50p ET, TH 2-2:50p ET
Required Text: The Law of God, Fr. Seraphim Slobodskoy; Bible (KJV); The History of the Ancient World: From the Earliest Accounts to the Fall of Rome, Susan Wise Bauer
