Oxford-trained professor Fr. David Meconi transports you to the world of the early Christians, where you will meet the great theologians who indelibly shaped Christianity.

Join Fr. David Meconi, multiple award-winning professor and Oxford-educated theologian on a journey through the most formative years of Christianity.

Through 10 erudite and lively lectures, you will explore the formative centuries of the Church (100-800 C.E.) and the great figures whose lives and writings inspired generations of later thinkers and believers.

Along the way, you will gain a richer understanding of Christianity today—its faith, traditions, scriptures, and theology.

One of the recurring lessons of Church history emerges from the way in which Christians have historically responded to both internal and external challenges and developments. From these lectures, you will gain insight into pivotal ecumenical councils, theological debates, and the lives of Eastern and Western Fathers of the Church.

Praise for Fr. David Vincent Meconi, S.J., D.Phil.

“The brilliant Augustine scholar Fr. David Meconi is well-known for his boundless energy in teaching, preaching, and writing… His personal love for the Trinity shines forth in his scholarship, and now it is available through Now You Know Media. Everyone who can’t take his courses at Saint Louis University needs this lecture series.” – Matthew Levering, Mundelein Seminary
“Fr. Meconi, SJ, gives witness to a rare and refreshing combination of scholarly insight and priestly compassion. An accomplished scholar and professor of theology, he reflects a life committed to the care of souls and the building of the body of Christ.” – Christopher Thompson, Ph.D., The Saint Paul Seminary School of Divinity
“Fr. David Meconi, S.J., is a priest with the mind of a scholar and the heart of a pastor, equally comfortable with plumbing the depths of Augustinian theology with students as he is with conveying the riches of Catholic spirituality to popular audiences.” – Carl E. Olson, best-selling author and Editor of Catholic World Report
“[Fr. Meconi’s] love of the topic gets translated into a passion to communicate the beauty of the truth of our Faith. I suspect that the listener will catch his passion for truth and grow spiritually as it instructs the interior of the soul.” – Fr. Mitch Pacwa, S.J.
