Join us for our upcoming course: “Heresy and the Fathers of the Church” with Dr. Andrew Chronister, Monday nights at 7:00pm from September 20th to October 18th at Kenrick-Glennon Seminary.

In this course, we will discuss some of the most important heresies that arose in the first few centuries of Christianity: Gnosticism and Marcionism, Arianism, Nestorianism, and Pelagianism. What did these heresies teach? How did they come about? How did the Fathers of the Church like Irenaeus, Athanasius, Cyril, and Augustine respond to them? And further, what can the battle between heresy and orthodoxy in early Christianity teach us about the Church today?

Andrew Chronister received his PhD in Historical Theology from Saint Louis University, where he wrote his dissertation on St. Augustine and the Pelagian Controversy. He has been at Kenrick-Glennon Seminary since 2016, where he teaches courses on Early Christianity and Latin.

Meetings will take place from 7-8:30 pm in room 105 at Kenrick-Glennon Seminary.
