Students' Papers : Ecclesiastic History



I.) Definition : Ecclesia is Greek and means "The Church"
A paper on ecclesiastic history would deal with the history of the respective "official church", with that of heresies, religious minorities, with dates of conflict, persecution, toleration and with separation of church and state (and perhaps with conflicts of church and state after separation). It will deal with phases in church history, with administrative divisions within the church province(s), with the degree of autonomy of the church from Rome or from the monarch, with matters such as the indigenate (if applicable).
