Christian thought has developed in relation to a variety of historical settings. We will look at the issues involved and the thinkers who addressed them, from the beginnings of Christianity through the Reformation. Among topics to be covered are the Trinitarian and Christological controversies, the debate over human nature by Augustine and Pelagius, and the assimilation of Aristotle into Christian Platonism by Thomas Aquinas.
