    Drawn, erased, and redrawn—watch as the lines of the early Church morph before your eyes into recognizable features of contemporary Catholic thinking.

    One of the recurring lessons of Church history emerges from the way in which Christians have historically responded to internal (as opposed to traditionally external) threats. From these

    lectures, you can expect to gain insight into certain ecumenical councils, theological debates, and the lives of Eastern and Western Fathers of the Church.

    Fr. Meconi’s scholarly meditation on moments within the life of the Church takes on the delicacy and precision of a well-executed portrait—proving that the pulse of the ancient faith still throbs inside the Catholic Church of the present day.
