Christian Initiation

  • Course Dates: Monday, 4 Mar 2013, 3:00 PM - Thursday, 7 Mar 2013, 5:00 PM

The major Western Churches have significantly revised their baptismal liturgies in the last fifty years.

This is in response to the changing place of the church in society, the fruits of liturgical scholarship in assessing patterns of the early church and ecumenical exchange.

This module will examine key historical periods which provide a context for contemporary rites and the theologies which lie behind them.
