Early Christian Heresies

In the final part of her 4-part series on the first 300 years of Christianity, Dr. Eugenia Constantinou talks about early Christian heresies.

Questions include:
* 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?
* Is there any scholarly basis to conspiracy theories about the Church covering up scandals as is portrayed in The DaVinci Code or more recently in discussions about the so-called Gospel of Jesus’ Wife?
* What do you think the public fascination with fictional Christian scandals says about our modern faith culture?
