(2000 Years of Christianity) is a German documentary series on the history of Christianity prior to the year 1999.
The term "cristendom" existed in Old English, but it had the sense now taken by "Christianity" (as is still the case with the cognate Dutch "christendom" , where it denotes mostly the religion itself, just like the German "
Like Luther, Arndt was very fond of the little anonymous book, "Theologia Germanica". He published an edition of it and called attention to its merits in a special preface. After "Wahres
", Arndt's best-known work is "Paradiesgärtlein aller christlichen Tugenden", which was published in 1612. Both these books have been translated into English: "Paradiesgärtlein" with the title "the Garden of Paradise", and "Wahres
" as "True Christianity". Several of his sermons are published in R. Nesselmann's "Buch der Predigten" (1858). A collected edition of his works was published in Leipzig and Görlitz in 1734.
Originally published in German in 1968 under the title, "Einführung in das
", Ratzinger restates the Apostles' Creed and the meaning of this foundational text in language that has a greater contemporary resonance than the Creed itself. Like the Apostles' Creed, the book presents the doctrines pertaining to the Father, the Son, and the Spirit in sequence.
Dölger's primary focus involved investigations of the early Christian church and its relationship with non-Christian societies. He also published scholarly works on the sacrament of confirmation, on exorcism, on baptism, and on the Eucharist in ancient Christianity. In 1929 he founded the journal "Antike und
" ("Antiquity and Christianity"), of which he contributed a series of detailed studies of the early church.
The Franz Joseph Dölger-Institute studies the late antiquity and in particular the confrontation and interaction of Christians, Jews and Pagans in the late antiquity. The institute edits the "Reallexikon für Antike und

In two works of this period, "Pierre Bayle" (1838) and "Philosophie und
" (1839), which deal largely with theology, he held that he had proven "that Christianity has in fact long vanished not only from the reason but from the life of mankind, that it is nothing more than a fixed idea."
After studying at Göttingen, Bonn and Giessen, he became professor at Kiel (extraordinarius) in 1889 and afterwards at Bonn (extraordinarius 1894; ordinarius 1897). He published, among other works, "Schleiermachers Stellung zum
in seinen Reden über die Religion" (1888), and a "Life" of his father (2 vols, 1829–96).
The current sense of the word of "lands where Christianity is the dominant religion" emerges in Late Middle English (by c. 1400). This semantic development happened independently in the languages of late medieval Europe, which leads to the confusing semantics of English "Christendom" equalling German "Christenheit", French "chrétienté" vs. English "Christianity" equalling German "
", French "christianisme". The reason is the increasing fragmentation of Western Christianity at that time both in theological and in political respect.
His many books include "Proklos: Grundzuge seiner Metaphysik", "Denken des Einen: Studien zur neuplatonischen Philosophie und ihrer Wirkungsgeschichte", "Eriugena: Grundzuge seines Denkens", "Platonismus im

In 1887 Carl Schmidt studied classical philology, Hebrew and comparative linguistics in Leipzig. After just one year he moved to the University of Berlin. Adolf Harnack introduced him to patristics and to the history of old Christian literature. The Egyptologists Adolf Erman and Georg Steindorff also had an impact. Steindorff taught him the Coptic language. His doctorate was on Codex Brucianus. Harnack recognised the special abilities of Schmidt and supported his pupil as much as he could, however Schmidt's career was uncertain for a long time. In 1899 he attained the habilitation in history of Christianity with "Plotins Stellung zum Gnostizismus und kirchlichen
Arndt's fame rests on his writings. These were mainly of a mystical and devotional kind, and were inspired by St Bernard, Johannes Tauler and Thomas à Kempis. His principal work, "Wahres
" (book 1: 1605; books 1-4: 1606-1610) i.e. "True Christianity", which has been translated into most European languages, has served as the foundation of many books of devotion, both Roman Catholic and Protestant. Arndt here dwells upon the mystical union between the believer and Christ, and endeavours, by drawing attention to Christ's life "in" His people, to correct the purely forensic side of the reformation theology, which paid almost exclusive attention to Christ's death "for" His people.
He studied at Halle, and served as pastor in various places till 1847, when he withdrew from the Evangelical Church, and thenceforth was preacher of the Free Congregation at Magdeburg. In 1841, he became the leader of the Friends of the Light (also called Protestant Friends). His liberal views frequently involved him in difficulties with the authorities. He published "Bekenntnisse" (4th ed. 1846); "
und Kirche" (2d ed. 1846); "Die Throne im Himmel und auf Erden" (1845); "Handbüchlein der freien Religion" (7th ed. 1889). His autobiography appeared at Gera in 1872.
In his "Rechtgläubigkeit und Ketzerei im ältesten
" (Tübingen 1934; a second edition, edited by Georg Strecker, Tübingen 1964, was translated as "Orthodoxy and Heresy in Earliest Christianity" 1971), Walter Bauer developed his thesis that in earliest Christianity, orthodoxy and heresy do not stand in relation to one another as primary to secondary, but in many regions heresy is the original manifestation of Christianity. Bauer reassessed as a historian the overwhelmingly dominant view that for the period of Christian origins, ecclesiastical doctrine already represented what is primary, while heresies, on the other hand somehow are a deviation from the genuine (Bauer, "Introduction").
