Background on First Council of Nicea

This is an article from The Catholic Encyclopedia about the First Council of Nicea held in 325 AD.

It is a good introductory article to answer questions about the formation of Christianity.

Hope this helps put Armstrong's Chpts 8-10 in context!

Important: Please Answer

Hi Class, It was brought to my attention that some classes are cancelled on the Monday of Thanksgiving week. I would be willing to do so if that helps you out with your travels, but we would have to have a double class to get the presentations in -- we could start earlier (ugh) or stay later? Do you want to voice opinions on that?

Syllabus Change

Mariam Said will meet students on the Monday Oct 24 not Wednesday Oct 26. The syllabus will be updated soon to reflect the difference

for some reason to i cant comment on megan's here is my comment

I am also stunned by the stark contrast of the Quran to the two other Abrahamic texts. I think it is important to realise that one voice, in one life time wrote the text which millions of people regard as sacred.

image for class blog

After looking over images, I do not think I can objectively come up with a collated image which would represent all peoples of Jerusalem equally. I still do not know enough about Jerusalem, and her people especially, to create an image which would be equal. Therefore, I think we should stick with the image of the sun over the city. I think this is an image which does not show much symbolism in regards to taking a side, and it can be viewed from the eyes of many and defined in multiple ways.
