- independently analyse, orally and in written form present and discuss chosen specialities in the first centuries of the Christian church.
|The course mainly consists of independent studies. Support in the form of supervision will also be included. Since the student chooses the reading list, which, however, should be approved by the coordinator, the emphasis of the course contents may differ. The contents are based on a reading list of high scholarly quality, such as theses and comment literature, as well as source materials. The reading list should be presented both in writing and orally.|
|The teaching takes the form of supervision and examination talks. The student mainly works with literature studies and writing independently.|
|The course is examined through written assignments and oral examination. Detailed information can be found in the study guide.
