Courses - Orthodox Christology

This course provides a detailed consideration of the content of Orthodox Christology and will allow the student to gain a firm grasp of the different questions and controversies which arose inside the Church in the first centuries. While it naturally concentrates on the scriptural and patristic texts which illuminate these questions, nevertheless it also places the issue of Christology in a personal and spiritual context, asking what these questions mean to each one of us.

This course will require approximately 100 hours of study, including using audio lectures, following a reading list, making notes, using the study guide, submitting short answer assignments and one longer essay. It will be conducted entirely online.

The LSOCS learning platform website will provide reading and study materials, and email support from a tutor will be available throughout the period of study.

Satisfactory completion of this course will result in the award of a Certificate of Study. This course is not presently validated for any external award of credit.

What is being said about this course by current students..

I just want to say that I'm mind blown by the reading material (and we're only on the introduction)!

I didn't realize how deep this subject was when I signed up.

I wish all the youth in the world had the opportunity to take this course.

The fees for this course are: UK students - £125, International students 135.

Registration and payment for this course is required before participation.
