Very Rev Dr John Behr

Adjunct Lecturer


CH - Church History


This class will examine the key figures of the School of Alexandria (Origen, Athanasius, and Cyril), relating them both to the historical development of theology and the controversies in which they were engaged, as well as to abiding issues in scriptural exegesis and systematic theology and the historical and contemporary problem of the split between the Eastern (Chalcedonian) and Oriental (non-Chalcedonian) Churches. The course will combine both lectures on general context and theology, and seminar-style close reading of selected texts (one from each author). View Timetable
