The Conference on Faith and History is a community of scholars exploring the relationship between Christian faith and history. As part of a university that seeks to integrate our faith into our studies and our lives, the History, Government and Social Science Department finds a natural partner in this conference, and seeks to be involved in its future growth development. The primary goal of the Conference is to encourage excellence in the theory and practice of history from the perspective of historic Christianity.
The purpose of the Conference on Faith and History is multi-fold. By providing a forum for discussion of philosophies, methods, and traditions of history, the conference fosters research in the general area of faith and history, and encourages and advances teaching and research informed by Christian faith commitments. The conference seeks to bring the concerns and perspectives of Christian historians before the larger historical community through the sponsorship of international, national and regional meetings.
During one's years at Biola, opportunities to be involved in the Conference on Faith and History will arise, and we hope that as a member of our small community of Christian historians, you will take these opportunities. These opportunities include attending Biennial conferences and student research conferences, attending a bi-annual one-day student conference (which we highly encourage all students to attend), as well as seeking publication in the Conferences journal, Fides et Historia.
