The title of this blog, historia kai theologia, is Greek for ‘history and theology’. Since the two fields of study have been often pitted against each other — by both sides equally throughout history! — the theme of this blog will be that instead of history versus theology, it should be history and theology.
In many ways my programmes of study aims to achieve this balance: I am a 20-year-old student from Wellington, New Zealand that studies history and theology (although within that, being a Christian, I’m particularly interested in Christian history and Christian theology). Why study both? Because the study of Christian origins (“history”) cannot be divorced from the question of God (“theology”), as the title of NT Wright’s 4-volume series (“Christian Origins and the Question of God”) aims to show.
