This course seeks to provide the student with an overview of historical and contemporary views of the nature of the Church, through a wide variety of readings and lecture-discussions. Students will become versed in the conceptual-theological, denominational, and historical versions of ecclesial reality, with constant reference to Scriptural interpretation and lived experience. The particular character of Anglican ecclesiology forms only one part of this study, although it will form a kind of comparative counterpoint to much of the survey. Lectures and discussion. Requirements: reading, written responses to the reading, and two short essays.
