This course is a study of the life, works, and legacy of great pillar of the Church, Saint Athanasius of Alexandria. Through careful reading and investigation, we will uncover why it is that Saint Athanasius became a foundational patristic father for the great Ecumenical Councils that followed after his life, and why it is that his writings and life continue to have a massive impact on the One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Orthodox Church.
Students are required to have an electronic journal that contains all of their notes for every content assignment in the course. There is a required minimum of one paragraph of notes per hour spent on a content assignment. The journal will be submitted in the Lesson Five Quiz when the course is completed.
Each week, students will perform a casual interview that relates to the content they are studying. A student can interview the same person as often as they want, and ideally, your interviewee is a person that is familiar with the current content you are studying. Students will submit a summary of their interviews at the end of the course.
