Private Property and the Early Church

Session 10
Introductory Course

Some studies of early Christianity assume that private property had no place in the life of the early church. They argue that in the first few centuries of the church, Christians held everything in common as they waited fervently for the Lord’s return. This presentation, however, will show that early Christians actually valued property and the role it played it early Christian life and worship.
