Project #16788 - Early Christian writing- 4 pages, double spaced

Given the readings and classes on Organizing Early Christianity (September 18), “Red”

Martyrdom (October 2), and “White” Martyrdom (October 16), think about how Christian

practice changes depending on the context. Look carefully at the primary readings and the

relevant passages in Clark and González, thinking especially about what Christians “do” and

why they do it.

Now, given what you’ve thought about, argue for both WHY and HOW Christian

practice changes depending on the context (this basic argument should be your thesis). Use the

texts you’ve read and thought about to support your claim. (You could also argue the negative,

that Christian practice never changes depending on context. To do this, you must find key

elements in Christian practice that survive across contexts. Again, use the texts to support your

claim.) Clark and González should be used mainly for background or to fill in some of the gaps.

Most, if not all, of your support should be from the primary texts (i.e., the readings that were not

Clark or González).

So you have two choices here: arguing how/why Christianity changes depending on

context, or arguing how/why Christianity does not change across contexts. Your thesis should be

a clear statement of one of these, and the paper should support this.


Be no shorter than 4 full pages (8 ½ x 11 in., standard US letter paper);

2) Be double-spaced and written in 12pt Times New Roman font (this font is 12 pt Times

New Roman);

3) Have 1 in. margins for the pages (beware, not all word processors have this as the

standard margins; this prompt has 1 in. margins);

4) Use citations in a standard style traditionally found in a field of the humanities

(Chicago, Turabian, MLA, SBL, etc.) and should place these citations in endnotesi (note

that endnotes do not count toward your four-page required length);

5) Have page numbers in the top right corner of the page;

6) Have a single-spaced, left aligned heading of no more than 3 lines with your name, the

date, and the words “Paper 1” or “Paper 1 Draft” looking like this:



Paper 1/Paper 1 Draft

7) Have no title and only a single blank line separating the single-spaced, three-line

header from the double-spaced body of the paper (like the space between the sample

header above and this item #7);

8) Have flawless grammar, punctuation, prose, and spelling (I would highly recommend

that you visit the Writing Center if you need to polish your prose between the draft and

the final paper).
