This course lays an excellent foundation for future high school and college history studies. It would make an excellent prerequisite for future history courses if parents desire.
Foundations of Christian Historiography explores the discipline of history from a Christian worldview. This course will educate students in the various ways people have viewed history throughout the ages, discuss the importance of retaining a Christian framework in our pursuit of historical studies, and train students to see subtle (or not so subtle) anti-Christian presuppositions in popular portrayals of historic events. Students will also learn how to prepare and draft research papers on historical topics, including how to utilize source material and cite sources. This class is essential for anyone interested in studying history at the college level and will be helpful for all Catholics, for whom history, tradition and theology are so tightly interwoven.
