Description

A remarkable reference book containing over 5,000 entries on all aspects of the Christian Church, from Aaron to Zwingli. The principle Christian doctrines and denominations are discussed in historical and theological detail including summaries of the opinions of theologians and philosophers. While its main emphasis is naturally on the history of the Christian Church in all its forms, it also explores a host of related subjects. Listed here are composers, painters, sculpters, and writers of religious works, accounts of non -Christian religions, descriptions of cathedrals, as well as significant discoveries in textual criticism and archeology. Ideal for the lay reader, no other handbook of the Christian Church so succinctly and attractively combines comprehensiveness with the authority of scholarship.show more
