This course offers an introduction to the history of the Christian Church in the Western European tradition between the rise of the medieval Church in the West eleventh and the twentieth century. Some discussion of the high and late middle ages, the Reformation and Confessional era, the Enlightenment, the era of Romanticism, the movements of Higher Criticism and Liberalism, and the modern Church is included. The history of the churches in North America, addressed in CH 109, is deliberately not discussed.
