Honors Outlook Jennifer Barry’s Religion 208, Christianity after the New Testament

Dr. Jennifer Barry’s Religion 208 course, Christianity after the New Testament
featured in the Honors Outlook.

Prof. Jennifer Barry’s course, RELG 208, Christianity After the New Testament, was spotlighted in the UMW Honors Newsletter. Christopher Anderson, a newly declared Religious Studies major, took the time to reflect on his experience in the class and highlighted an interactive assignment where students had the opportunity to re-enact the formative Christian Council of Nicaea (325 CE). This creative exercise allowed students to apply their cumulative knowledge and embody different theological positions in the game of early Christian politics. They also dove into the art of ancient rhetoric and attempted to navigate a fraught history of imperial and religious scandal.
