Religious Studies | Paul and His Influence in Early Christianity
A321 | 13355 | J. Harrill
Paul of Tarsus is the most important human figure in the history of Christianity. This course
investigates the man and the myth through a historical study of Paulís own letters and the
later writings about him. We begin with a survey of Paulís letters, turn to the social and
cultural history of Pauline congregations, and then look at Paulís ancient and modern legacy.
Topics include Paulís moral teaching, including areas of controversy.
