Doctoral students who choose this curricular path investigate the historical events concerning all Christian churches and movements from their origins to the present. They acquire the philological, linguistic, and theoretical knowledge and skills necessary to research theological, normative, and literary textualities relevant to the understanding of Christianity in its doctrinal, canonical, liturgical, and exegetical dimensions along a historical line. They develop a critical awareness of the historical differentiation of Christian traditions and processes relating to different contexts. This curriculum aims at building upon linguistic competencies commensurate with different subjects and developing perceptions of the long-term dimensions operating in the different historical eras up to the present times, including comparison with philosophical models and scientific cultures of the different historical seasons of its development on a global scale.
