For my research project on the Early Christian Church, I have obtained a few sources from the Gale Research Center. One is based off an essay on “Bede’s Ecclesiastical History” which contains much of the history of the church in the Roman Empire. The next provides an explanation of the Council of Nicaea which was a turning point in Christianity under Emperor Constantine’s provision. The last speaks of the Sabbath commanded by God and it’s significance. I will use these sources in my research paper in order to address the topic of the early church changing in history.
