Missiology

Continuation of missiology Catholic mission history classes of audio recordings: had started from the idea that when we speak of mission, and try to explain the history of the Mission of the Church, must do so from different circumstances, from which it was developed. The Adgentes document. In strict terms, the Adgentes mission, says the output to those who do not know the truth revealed. While that is true, it is also true that the same document recognizes that this practice depends on developing in different circumstances. He tried to raise some of the models within which the Church develops the mission, since its birth, goes out to proclaim the Gospel. We said that in the context of adversity, he announces, the missionary, does it from a reality that leads him to martyrdom, and planteabamos martyrs like the early Christians that give life by proclaiming the Gospel. We saw then as circumstances change that will move the Christians and therefore How to change the shape of the mission. We had remembered that in the 4th century a.d., Christianity lives radically different circumstances to which had lived until then.

We had said that the theme of martyrdom in Christian character, becomes, becomes, is of significant importance. Precisely because the context pursues him. Precisely because the context leads to martyrdom. We had raised the issue that when formalization of Christianity within the framework of the Empire, this reality camba. Not just disappears persecution, if not who implemented protection for Christians.

We had raised the idea that is strange to realize that in this context of protection, a new model of Christian radicalism appears. And that this new model, the monks, embodied in the 4th century. The first news of monasticism, of monastic life in the Christian tradition. In the desert of Egypt. It is a way of life that waives the protection context.
