Note: while I understand that the Early Church Fathers are generally spread around the Catholic, Orthodox, Lutheran, Anglican, Eastern Orthodox, Oriental Orthodox, Coptic ... there is not space to refine their sphere of influence. Therefore I have simply changed from Catholic to Catholic/Orthodox or Catholic/Orthodox dissenter for the period prior to 1054. I have divided the chart into 2 parts and displayed my current denominational designations. In the earliest centuries, the dates are often estimates to show contemporaries rather than exact dates.

Corrections and additions are welcomed.

Hi MJ

 

Thanks so much for the above. Your work is very much appreciated by all of us.

Is there a way that I can use both of these timelines within Logos4?

Thanks so much again.

Gerald

Thanks for this chart:  I would add some prominent theologians from the dispensational camp.  I understand that you are classifying these theologians by demonination but a better classification for Dr. John Walvoord would be Dispensational.  You do have the classification reformed and fundamental which transent demonination bariers.   I would change Arno C. Gaebelein, H.A. Ironside, Donald Barnhouse and John Walvoord  to dispensational.  I would also add Charles Ryrie, Lewis Sperry Chafer, C.I. Scofield; Arnold Fruchtenbaum, John Nelson Darby, and J Dwight Pentecost  as Dispensational to your list.  Even the Logos Web Sight lists these under Theological Systems Dispensational. Thanks!

Thanks you - I'll make the changes this evening. Most of the denominations I'd been gleaning from wikipedia..

You should probably include the modern giants of Barth (Reformed) and Pannenberg (Lutheran). 

You may also want to include Th. von Harnack, as well as Chemnitz, Walther and Elert from the Concordia collections.

MJ, I know this is an old thread, but I'm looking forward to user-created timelines being shareable in L4. This looks like a great resource!

Incidentally, a game I just came across recently that you might be interested in:
