Kim Bowes, Cornell University: "Private Religion and the Rise of Christianity"

Thu, February 25, 2010 • 5:00 PM - 6:00 PM • McCombs School of Business 4.326

The history of Christianity had been dominated by its public face--by bishops, by great basilicas, by doctrinal stuggles. This talk addresses Christianity’s other history- the history of private worship in the home. Drawing on both archaeological and textual evidence, it describes the challenge that domestic worship presented to a still-nascent public institution.
