I would like to know the difference between these two resources?

 

Cross, F. L. and E.A. Livingstone, eds. The Oxford Dictionary of the Christian Church

 

and

 

Di Berardino, A., et al. Encyclopedia of Ancient Christianity.

 

I am looking for a comprehensive Christian Church history.  I would like to request these two resources in Accordance, if anyone have not already done so.  Thank you!

Perhaps something more up-to-date given its publishing date, but then I do not have that resource yet to check its content and compare it to the ones I mentioned earlier. Honestly, I was thinking of the resource you just mentioned along with one of the two resources I listed. I just do not know which of the two can be a better complement. Have you used any of the two resources listed?

Schaff is fairly comprehensive, not up-to-date, but a good starting place.

It is difficult to find much written on recent history or current events, how up-to-date does it need to be? 

What aspects of Church history are you interested in?

I use the oxford volume ( though a slightly earlier edition), it has been requested before ( though i understand, oup are not the most helpful of publishers) and in another thread, it is rated higher than the nidcc.

It is certainly my go to reference resource (and i got the abridged version first when resources were tight) but i am not sure by you comment on comprehensive church history, i use other resources for that. The dictionary is great if you know what you are looking for.

I am looking for at least the historical development of Christian theology and dogmas from its origin to as much as present day as could be possible and Christian Church interaction with these doctrines. I understand that there is no one volume that will cover each period of Church history in a exhaustive manner, but at least a resource or two that goes beyond a typical survey and provide extensive biographical data for further study.

In addition to what has been written on another post on here, I would like to look up names of certain individuals and movements that I may not be well aware of when reading textbooks on Church history, like the two volumes by Justo L. Gonzales. In those cases, searching in theological dictionaries, biblical dictionaries, and secular dictionaries have proven unfruitful. And when I do find something, it is too superficial, unhelpful, and does not provide biographical information for further study. I was thinking that maybe the Oxford dictionary will serve my purpose.

Emanuel, I'm not using the latest edition of the oxford dictionary but could certainly scan a couple of entries for you so you could get a flavour of the level of detail, (unless someone has the latest version). There have been instances where i would like to know more (like in which centuary did we start using the term septuagesima Sunday, possibly 14thc so as dan says, it covers a greater period which has its own plus and minus) but everytime ive used it, it has dealt with my immediate question ( in this case, what it means and when it occurs and when it is measured from ;o) though the entries do vary) and key people are dealt with in good detail.

Encyclopedia of Ancient Christianity is a dictionary by it;s very nature is looking at only the first several centuries (I do not have access to a copy but I would be surprised if it even gets up to Bede (735), The Oxford Dictionary of the Christian Church is or course going to be briefer, but does cover things till 2005. Like ukfraser it tends to be my goto for information. Helen's suggestion is not a bad one, I know you said you wanted something more up to date, but when dealing with ancient church history we are not making great strives in our understanding there (I am not saying there would be nothing new but very very little). Since I mentioned Bede the Venerable I will share for the two sources i own for you to see what they offer.

 

 

BEDE (Baeda) (c.673–735). Monk of Jarrow and “the Father of English history.” Born at Monkton on Tyne, County Durham, he was taken at the age of seven to the newly founded monastery of Wearmouth a few miles away, moving almost at once to become one of the first members of the community at Jarrow, near his birthplace. He spent the whole of the rest of his life there, never traveling outside Northumbria so far as is known, and yet he became one of the most learned men in Europe. The scholarship and culture of Italy had been brought to England by Theodore of Tarsus,* who was archbishop of Canterbury in the early years of Bede’s life, and it was introduced into Wearmouth and Jarrow by Benedict Biscop.* Here it coalesced with the simpler traditions of devotion and evangelism which came from the Celtic Church.* This caused Northumbria to be a beacon of Christian learning while darkness was gathering on the Continent, and Bede was the foremost example and promoter of that learning.

He grew up at Jarrow under Ceolfrith, from whom he learned the love of scholarship and personal devotion and discipline. When an epidemic swept the monastery, only Ceolfrith and Bede were left, and he records how they managed to maintain the regular divine worship. He was made deacon at the age of nineteen and priest at thirty by John of Beverley, bishop of Hexham. He learned Latin, Greek, and Hebrew. He had a good knowledge of classical authors, which often had to be acquired from books of extracts or quotations in other people’s writings. He was familiar with the works of Ambrose, Jerome, Augustine, and Gregory the Great, and he knew something of Anglo-Saxon poetry.
Bede’s writings cover a wide range, including natural history, chronology, biblical translation, and exposition. Most important was his Historia Ecclesiastica Gentis Anglorum (“Church History of the English People”). He is described as “the Father of English history” partly because he was the first to try to write any kind of history of England at all, for he sets the story of the church in the general history of the nation. But this title is also due to him because of his methodology. His thorough scholarship is known, for example, by his asking friends to search the archives of the Roman Church and bring him copies of documents which he needed to see. He also had copies made of epitaphs. Where there was nothing in writing he tried to consult the best available oral tradition. He was not always critical, but his work is nonetheless invaluable and his stories are told with great charm. The account of his finishing his translation of John’s gospel before his death is deservedly famous. His fame continued after his death, when he began to be known as “the Venerable Bede.” His bones were removed to Durham to the coffin of Cuthbert, and in 1370 placed in a special tomb in the cathedral.
See his History, ed. B. Colgrave and R.A.B. Mynors (1969); and P.H. Blair, The World of Bede (1970).
 
R.E. NIXON
 
 
NIDCC, s.v. “BEDE,” n.p.
 
 
 
Bede, St (c. 673–735), ‘The Venerable’, pedagogue, computist, biblical exegete, hagiographer, and historian, the foremost and most influential scholar from Anglo-Saxon England. The course of his uneventful life is known from the brief notice which he himself gave in the last chapter of his Historia Ecclesiastica: at the age of 7 he was given as an *oblate to the newly-founded monastery of *Wearmouth under the care of St *Benedict Biscop and subsequently, on the foundation of Jarrow in 682, was transferred to that abbey and to its abbot, Ceolfrith. Except for brief excursions to *Lindisfarne and *York, Bede spent the remainder of his life at Jarrow, devoting himself to reading, teaching, and the explication of Scripture. He was ordained deacon at the age of 19 and priested when he was 30; he died at Jarrow aged over 60.
Bede’s pedagogical writings include treatises De Orthographia, an alphabetically arranged glossary of Latin words which are capable of confusion or misunderstanding by beginners; De Arte Metrica, a lucid account of the principles underlying quantitative verse, based on Late Latin grammatical treatises but including many quotations from Christian Latin poets; and De Natura Rerum, a cursory exposition of natural phenomena such as the motion of the planets, eclipses, tides, etc., based mainly on Isidore and Pliny. Each of these pedagogical treatises survives in large numbers of manuscripts, indicating that they constituted an essential ingredient of the medieval curriculum. His computistical writings were equally influential. They include an early work, the De Temporibus, written to explain to his students the principles for the calculation of *Easter acc. to the Roman usage adopted by the Synod of *Whitby (664). This work was so highly compressed, however, that Bede later produced a longer and more discursive account of Paschal reckoning in his De Temporum Ratione (written in 725), and this work, which survives in some 250 manuscripts, proved to be the most widely studied computistical manual of the Middle Ages. Bede’s pedagogical instincts were, however, best applied to the explication of Scripture. For his biblical exegesis he used both the *Vulgate and the *Old Latin texts as well as (for Acts) the Greek text. His commentaries were largely based on the writings of St *Augustine, St *Jerome, St *Ambrose, and St *Gregory the Great, but they also embodied original comment: they were motivated above all by concern with clarity of exposition, and it was this concern which commended them to his contemporaries and successors. His commentaries include works on Gen. 1–20, Exod. 24:12–30:21, Sam., Kgs., Tobit, Song of Songs, Ez. and Neh., Mk., Lk., Acts, the *Catholic Epistles, and Rev. Bede’s interest in hagiography is reflected in the extensive revision which he made of the *Hieronymian Martyrologium (his revision does not survive in its pristine form) as well as in the prose Vita S. Felicis, a recasting of various poems by *Paulinus of Nola on St Felix. But it was his two Lives of St *Cuthbert—one in verse and a later one in prose (c. 721)—which secured Bede’s reputation as a hagiographer and the establishment of the cult of St Cuthbert throughout Europe. Whereas during the Middle Ages Bede was widely known for all facets of his scholarly work, he is best known today as a historian; indeed he has been called the ‘Father of English History’. His early interest in computus led him naturally to the study of chronology: to each of his major computistical treatises he appended a set of annals recording the history of the world from creation to his own day. The study of chronology culminated in the Historia Ecclesiastica Gentis Anglorum (completed in 731), one of the great works of medieval historiography and the single most important source for our understanding of early England.
To the end of his life Bede was occupied in teaching and expounding Scripture, as we learn from an eyewitness account of his last days by a devoted student (the Epistula Cuthberti de obitu Bedae). In a letter written towards the end of his life and addressed to *Egbert (Abp of *York, 732–66) he emphasized the importance of episcopal visitation, Confirmation, and frequent Communion as the remedy for the ills of the time. Less than a century after his death he was honoured with the title of Venerable, and in the 11th cent. his bones were translated to *Durham; a conspicuous tomb in the cathedral still commemorates him. In 1899 *Leo XIII declared him a ‘*Doctor of the Church’. Feast day, 25 (formerly 27) May.

PS:I went to the IVP web page and it does cover Bede and a couple other 8th century people but it states it primarily not going beyond the fourth century.

Di Berardino, A., et al. Encyclopedia of Ancient Christianity.

 

​I would defiantly consider getting the Di Berardino, A., et al. Encyclopedia of Ancient Christianity. In Accordance if they got it. I do know it is currently available in OT but they have no good way of making a citation.

The biographical information and greater coverage till 2005 are a definite plus for me.  Unfortunately, the NIDCC does lack an ample resources list, as I can see on here. Although the Oxford resource may not be as in-depth on the periods covered specifically by the EAC, it seems to provide the most necessary or important information I may need at the moment.

I have used these in the past. I was able to digitise these and have them as searchable PDFs.

 

Bromiley, Geoffrey. Historical theology–An introduction (1994)

Cunliffe-Jones, Hubert. A history of Christian doctrine (1980)

Gonzalez, Justo. A history of Christian thought (revised edition) (3 vols) (1994–5)

Lane, Tony. The Lion book of Christian thought (1992)

Lohse, Bernhard. A short history of Christian doctrine (1985)

 

I also have Louis Berkhof's History of Christian doctrine, and Alister McGrath's Historical theology

 

An Amazon search for "historical theology" and similar phrases might help.

I have both works that the OP is asking about in Bible Study softwares. Oxford's is pretty good, it should prove useful in many cases but may sometimes not cover everything that happened up until 2005 nor always provide long enough articles, but it should be a good start and has in high esteem. If Accordance would produce the IVP work it would be great although Accordance might have to compete with OliveTree's functionality when it comes to browsing a Bible alongside the Encyclopedia.

I also have a more brief work: Continuum's Christianity The Complete Guide but the bibliographies are insufficient for Your needs and the coverage is not nearly as great. It works as a quick reference as printed matter though and also has a "Who's who" with brief bibliographies and one bibliographic entry per theologian covered which spans from the Medieval through Modern era and up to the 20th century. With Your needs I would not buy it as it is more focused on current or somewhat recent theology and lacking in articles on historical events. A very much more expensive work which I have is Eerdmans Encyclopedia of Christianity and is good for the current World but may have some of the same disadvantages.


Was on a vacation in Germany by car July 21. - Aug. 1. relaxing, evangelizing a little, while studying.
Going to teach myself the asq -programming language. /June 16. 2015
Installing OS X 10.11 El Capitan (one year membership $99) in July 2015 on my 2007 Macbook Pro with motherboard changed when it was 4 years old, disks changed as well: main drive 256 GB SSD, two new batteries. The 6 GB RAM and the two USB 3.0 ports for it (the latter through ExpressCard slot) just arrived this afternoon. /June 17. I haven't got the competitor software to work on it yet. /July 9.-20. 2015
This Summer 2015 I will use all of July-August for studies in order to catch up with Theology and to begin Hebrew, language class starts towards the end of August.

Thank you Unix. I was looking at the latter encyclopedia this morning and it looks interesting. I have the online access to the first couple volumes of the Encyclopedia of the Bible and Its Reception, and although expensive, it has proven worthwhile when doing some research. I was not aware that the IVP set was available in that other software. It would be convenient to have it in Accordance.
