Writing a History of a Faith Community

Semester 2
Day Class

This unit will introduce students to issues involved in writing a history of a local church, faith community or faith-based organisation. Historiographical and ethical issues such as the selection, use, and interpretation of different sources in the construction of a coherent historical narrative will be explored. The impacts of secularization, and of social, demographic, cultural, religious, and theological changes upon faith communities will be addressed. The unit will provide an opportunity for students to review and undertake research of selected Christian churches and organisations.
