Did the early Christians present an ethical challenge to the society of their day or leave it unchanged? Did they practise equality or provide a religious justification for patriarchy and slavery? Did they really turn the other cheek and share their possessions? What did their non-Christian contemporaries make of their behaviour? An introduction to current thinking about the controversial ethics of the first followers of Jesus.


Unless otherwise stated, teaching and assessment for ICE courses are in English. Students whose first language is not English should refer to the Competence in the English Language Policy for further guidance.
