Product Description
The triumph of the Church under Constantine and his successors brought it growing pains as different ideas about Christ's nature arose and many people joined the Church for less than religious reasons.

This Powerpoint looks at the reaction to these two issues: Church councils that declared certain beliefs as heresies, and the rise of monasteries as a way to escape the troubles and corruption of the outside world. Included are picture essays on medieval hermits, Church saints, illuminated manuscripts, and a look at St. Augustine's impact on Christian morality.

This is a self-contained PowerPoint that develops slide by slide while other notes for the students scroll down the side. It can be run as a timed presentation on its own, presented slide by slide for discussion, or integrated into your other lectures. There are also extensive pictures with captions mixed in to illustrate the lesson and capture students’ interest. This packet also contains a student reading, flowchart, and the author’s own research notes which contain lots of details and interesting trivia to spice up your class.
