#309 – A History of the Catholic Church – Tituli and Domus Ecclesiae

duraeuropos

We begin a two part series on Christian worship, beginning with the worship in the early Christian house churches – looking at the relationship of architecture, art and ritual practice. As the theology of Baptism and Eucharist develops, so will the architecture of the churches where Christians worship also change to reflect that theology. We will also look at how one of the Church’s texts of this time, the Didiscalia Apostolorum describes liturgical practice.
