In this course we will take cognizance of research into the social form and functioning of Christian communities in antiquity and today's, largely secular, times. We aim at understanding how Christian core beliefs, values, master narratives and cultural influences shape the identity and communal practices of these communities, how they express their faith, how they interact with the surrounding world and how they develop to cope with challenges from within and without.
Groups from two phases of Christian history will be studied as examples: first the earliest (to become) Christian communities formed by Paul and his co-workers in the first century CE, second, Christian communities in the Netherlands of the late 20th and early 21st century. Both situations are characterized by the fact that the communities can be described as minority groups in a society where other belief and value systems dominate. How did the first Jewish-Christian groups establish their identity and practices vis a vis Jewish and Greco-Roman majority views and managed to attract nonbelievers? How do contemporary Christian communities establish their identity and practices, coping with the challenges of post-Christian society?
