Synopsis

Christianity has its roots in Asia. It is from Asia that it spanned out eastwards, southwards (to Africa) and westwards (to Europe).  Yet, many still think of Christianity as a Western religion.  This course surveys the spread of Christianity as it moved eastwards towards Persia (current day Iraq/Iran), India, China, Japan, Korea and the islands of south east Asia.  It will give attention to the emerging factors and themes contributing to the advance/decline at key historical junctures that may hold pertinent lessons for the continued growth of Christianity in Asia.
