period/Founding date: Jesus was born 6-4 BC, the Gospels were
written 65-96, and in 394 Emperor Theodosius claimed Christianity to be the official religion for the Roman Empire.
Location where religion began:
Jesus resided in the Roman province of Palestine (this was where he lived his life), so I’d believe it’s
safe to say that this was where Christianity first began.
books of the religion/literature associated with it: The major
book of Christianity is the Bible (which is made up of the Old Testament).
doctrines/beliefs/practices and their explanations:
· Cross – The Cross was the method of execution used by the Romans, during the time
of Jesus. Now it is Jesus’ symbol: a symbol for resurrection and suffering.
· Lent – Considered a remembrance period of the time that lead up to Christ’s
– Considered a commemoration of Jesus’ revisit
to life, after death.
– A celebration of Jesus’ birth, on December 25th.
