History of the Early Christian Church lives on

Here’s some good news for ancient history fans. David Miano, teacher of UCSD’s The History of the Early Christian Church has made the lectures available on his own website, giving a second chance for those of you who failed to grab the course before UCSD removed the lectures from its website at the end of the spring 2009 term.  As an extra bonus, Miano has posted the Powerpoint slides for his lectures, so you can get the visuals as well as the audio.

Miano brings enthusiasm and verve to the subject of the rise of Christianity, using analogies with modern culture to help make the ancient world more understandable.  As I mentioned before, I especially recommend lectures 6 and 7, which analyze the synoptic Gospels, and shows how they provide evidence for the differing beliefs of different early Christian communities.
