Definition

Historical theology refers to the discipline of narrating the development of Christian theology.

Summary

Historical theology is closely related to but distinct from the discipline of Church History, which is more interested in the institutional history of the church and its place in social history. We might also distinguish historical theology from the history of Christian thought and the history of dogma but there is considerable overlap between these disciplines.  Historical theology traces the development of Christian theology through the Patristic (AD 100–500), Medieval (AD 500–1500), Reformation (1500–1600), Post-Reformation (1600–1700), and Modern (1700–present) periods.
