This course is an overview of Anglican and Episcopal History, and addresses global contexts and diversity by specifically examining issues of race, class, gender, human sexuality, and globalization within the Episcopal Church and Anglican Communion. The emphasis in pedagogy is to have students reflect and integrate their own current experience of ministry within the historical and contemporary contexts that have shaped and created Anglicanism. This course expects that students will have had a general overview or survey course in the History of Christianity.
