HISTORY of Christian Theology

is a broad term that refers to Christian theologians up to the 6th century that later theologians relied on to determine correct Christian doctrine. This term includes the apostolic fathers who likely had direct contact with one or more of the apostles, the apologists of the 2nd and 3rd centuries, and later important theologians and doctors of the Church such as Augustine, Jerome, and Ambrose in the West and the Cappadocians in the East. The Christian humanist of the 15th and 16th centuries were particularly interested in studying the writings of these church fathers in order to reform the Catholic Church through education and a return to original understanding of doctrine.
