Overview

Christianity and History was originally a lecture to the Berlin branch of the Evangelical Union, an organization founded to help protect the Protestant Church from being merged with the Roman Catholic Church. The object of the lecture is “to show in what sense religion, and more especially the Christian religion, can be said to be dependent upon historical facts: how far it is established, if certain alleged events are proved to have actually happened; how far it is overthrown, if they are found to be the product of myth or incredible legend.” The question of whether or not history supports Christianity of high importance, and Adolph Harnack’s years of study on the history of dogma well equip him to answer the question. Only 86 pages, this concise lecture is packed with history and persuasive argument for the historical validity of Christianity.

Adolf von Harnack (May 7, 1851–June 10, 1930), was a German theologian and prominent church historian. He produced many religious publications from 1873–1912. Harnack traced the influence of Hellenistic philosophy on early Christian writing and called on Christians to question the authenticity of doctrines that arose in the early Christian church.
