Historical Studies Faculty
The History of Christianity faculty at Baylor examine and explore the rich expressions of the Christian faith across a wide variety of cultures, with a focus on the Reformations of the sixteenth century to the present. Our studies focus upon significant figures, institutions, and movements in the history of global Christianity, especially as it impacted and was affected by culture. Christianity is a World Religion and students will be exposed to many different approaches to the study of the history of Christianity, including the study of the institutional church, its theology and teaching, as well as intellectual, social, cultural, and gender approaches. Baylor is committed to teaching and learning the breadth of Christian traditions in the world. This area welcomes curiosity in all areas of the Christian narrative. The faculty is especially strong in Baptist Studies and Pentecostalism, World Christianity Studies, and the European Reformations of the sixteenth century.
Area faculty include Drs. Doug Weaver, Carlos Cardoza-Orlandi, Elizabeth Flowers, and David Whitford.
