The purpose of this research guide is to provide an introduction to the basic resources for the study of doctrinal teachings, theological disputes, heresies and controversies of the Christian church.
"During the first five centuries or so of Christianity, a number of false teachings, called heresies, about Jesus arose in the church. They clustered into two main categories: one that denied Jesus' humanity, the other that denied his divinity." (Pennock, M.F. The Seeker's Catacheism; pg. 17)
