I’m about to begin an exciting aspect of my dissertation research: history of interpretation. For those who are new to my blog, I’m currently writing a dissertation (for a PhD) on the topic of the gathering of the church in the New Testament. One chapter of that dissertation will cover the history of interpretation and understanding of the meeting of the church.
The chapter will cover five broad historical eras: post-apostolic age, medieval age, Reformation age, and modern age.
I’ve already completed some research for this chapter, but I have much more to research. So, don’t be surprised if you find some quotes and snippets showing up on my blog.
Which historical era do you think will be the most interesting when it comes to studying church gatherings?
