Week 29: Post-New Testament Christianity and the Great Apostasy

20 July 2011

Additional reading and links from this lesson:
  • Walter Bauer, “Orthodoxy and Heresy in Earliest Christianity.” Dr. Bauer’s 1934 paper revolutionized the study of early Christianity. Everything written on it since then has been a reaction to his thesis that what came to be known as “orthodoxy” was just one of numerous forms of Christianity in the early centuries.

  • Stephen E. Robinson, “Nephi's ‘Great and Abominable Church,’” Journal of Book of Mormon Studies 7/1 (1998), 32–39. BYU Professor Robinson evaluates the Book of Mormon’s statements on the “great and abominable church” and identifies what organization Nephi was referring to.
