This is a course in the basic history of the Episcopal Church. We will begin with a consideration of the planting of colonial Anglican churches and the struggle for stability and identity, especially in the wake of the American Revolution. Each week, in a linear sequence, we will read from Robert Prichard’s “A History of the Episcopal Church”, (Morehouse, 1991) which will be used as the principle text. The course will conclude with a decade of renewal (1980-90) and some reflection on directions and developments, which continue to shape our church of the present.
Scholarship funds to help you pay for this course are available if you can demonstrate need and if you are a member of a parish of the Episcopal Diocese of Central PA. For information on scholarships please contact the Dean.
