I’m working on my final exam for early church history today, and it is such a neat exam! We pick one of the general areas covered in the class — I picked Christology — and then we are to create a graphical σχεμα (schema) that illustrates the major developments in this area through the first five centuries, accompanied by a four page essay explaining our schema.
I’m having such fun working on my diagram! And I’m delighted by the symmetry: this is the final exam for my last required course before starting my master’s thesis, and in my first required course at the EI, which included visiting lectures by one professor from each of the departments as well as some basic material introducing us to reading and writing in theology, I knew I was on the right track when the lecturer in systematics drew diagrams on the board to demonstrate the relationship between worship, scripture, and theology. 😀
