    Focusing on the interaction between the sacred and the secular, this introduction to the history of Christianity examines three pivotal periods: from 300 CE, when Constantine initiated the process of Christianizing the Roman world, to 500 CE; 1050-1250, which saw a radical programme of renewal in Latin Christendom; and 1450-1650, the age of upheavals known as the Reformation. Within these periods Herring illuminates specific aspects of the historical experience of Christianity by looking at institutions, theological ideas or particular individuals.
