    Wasn't Tertullian the author of the Trinity ideology?

    Anyway, a good deal of people were considered heretics or some other such thing before later being canonized, ironically, as saints.
    It's just an odd fact of Church history.

    True enough. Rome doesn't like Tertullian for reasons far beyond whatever Montanism may have been.

    AFAIK, Tertullian has not been canonized...

    Came across this rather fascinating chart as of late and really enjoyed it for the extent of depth it had:

    From the looks of it, this 'very good book' completely missed the existence of the Orthodox Church. That's a huge chunk of the 'full sweep' of church history to be missing.
     
  8. Yeah, lets go with these instead:

  9. Here are some fun words that do not appear in Chapter 2: Nicaea. Chalcedon. Monks. Monasteries. Charlemagne. Crusades. Thomas Aquinas. This is not even close to a history.

    Instead, in addition to the three books above, I recommend:

    How influential was Tertullian in early Christianity?

    How does Christianity view Turtillian and his teachings and writings?
    I myself know little about him, but he seems to have been a fairly influential Christian back in his time.

    Thanks, sarge. That was interesting.
    I was wondering how Bob's link were received by our thread starter here.
    I was thinking of visiting her page to ask how her query was going.

    I am currently reading "On This Day in Christian History" by Robert Morgan. It is a pretty un-biased source. Both Catholics and Protestants are the daily heroes of this book.

    Just to add to this already amazing list, one book that I keep taking out of my public library (woollahra Lib, Sydney), and covers all the controversies, events and martyrdoms century by century from the C2nd AD to the present; has beautiful illustrations, is for anyone (except children-graphic martyrdoms) and is purely facts and very neutral and objective in its narratives; is The Compact Guide to Christian History / by Stephen Backhouse.— 1st ed.— Oxford : Lion Hudson plc, c2011.— (a Lions Book series). distributors (if cannot find it in your libraries) UK—Marston Book Services, PO Box 269, Abingdon, Oxon, OX14 4YN; USA—1) Trafalgar Square Publishing, 814 N Franklin Street, Chicargo, IL 606 10, 2) Christian Market: Kregel Publications, PO Box 2607, Grand rapids, MI 49501 [in-book-pub-info]. I guarantee you will not be able to put it down, it is fascinating the evolution, spiritual battles and thoughts that occurred in Christianities history. I hope this will make your journey more enriched, as the key to it all is finding Gods depth of his Love. From a person who always seeks and is a sponge for good knowledge. Gez77
