In the final part of her 4-part series on the first 300 years of Christianity, Dr. Eugenia Constantinou talks about early Christian heresies.
* How can we define heresies?
* Tell us about a few of the substantial disagreements within the Church during these early years. How contained were heretical groups and their beliefs?
