CHHI 301 Research Exercise 1
Research and locate 1 scholarly journal article on each of the following 3 topics for a total of 3 scholarly journal articles. Scholarly journal articles must be articles from scholarly or academic journals. “Christianity Today” and Bible dictionaries/encyclopedias (in printed form or online) do not count as scholarly articles. Also, books and book reviews cannot be used. Instead, find a scholarly article from an academic journal to use; they will usually be more than 5 pages. If you question if an article is acceptable, contact your professor. Part of the grade derives from your ability to summarize scholarly journal articles.
Using proper, current Turabian format, summarize the main points of each article in your own words in a 1-paragraph summary. Include the bibliographic information for each of the 3 articles. The 3 topics are as follows:
- The Persecution of the Early Church (pick a specific outbreak caused by a Roman emperor, the reasons for the outbreak, and the results).
- How did the Pax Romana help the spread of the Gospel?
- Heresies of the early church and the councils that dealt with the specific matter (pick a specific item such as the Arian Conflict, Monophysitism, Nestorianism, etc.).
Your research findings must be submitted in 1 document via the SafeAssign submission link in the Assignments folder and uploaded to Discussion Board Forum 1.
