The topic I am going to dive into as a research paper is based on Christianity and how the customs of today’s Christianity differ from that of the early church and how they came to be. Some questions will be answered like what Easter is, why are there bunnies and eggs to paint then, Where did the bread and wine ceremony originate, and in general, how many teachings of Christians today evolved from Christian teachings from long ago.
Since this may be a sensitive topic in regards to bias, I will use many neutral texts based on history. One is Christianity Through the Centuries by Earle E. Caims, we are exposed to many controversies within the early church on teachings coming from Christ’s Church . It also relates to article by Early Church Texts which speaks of the same topic and includes other like the one of Quartodecimanism. The Wiley online library also speaks of the same matter as well explaining throughly the Jewish to Christian transfer of customs.
