Early Christianity is a period in the history of Christianity, generally reckoned by church historians to begin with the ministry of Jesus (c. ) and end with the First Council of Nicaea (). It is typically divided into two periods: Christianity in the 1st century which is known as the Apostolic Age (c. 30–) and the Ante-Nicene Period (c. –).

Donald, A History of the Church in the Middle Ages, (Routledge, London. ) Vauchez, Andre, The Spir’ty of the Medieval West from the 8 th to the 12 th Century, (Cistercian, ).

The Seven, often known as the Seven Deacons, were leaders elected by the Early Christian church to minister to the community of believers in Jerusalem, to enable the Apostles to concentrate on 'prayer and the Ministry of the Word' and to address a concern raised by Greek-speaking believers about their widows being overlooked in the daily diakonia or ministry. As Catholics we can’t truly know who we are without knowing where we came from—those earliest Christians who, succeeding Jesus and the apostles, codified and built upon the teachings they inherited. 20 Answers: The Early Church reveals the legacy of our forefathers in the Faith, showing how they lived and what they believed.

The seven Churches are named for their locations. The Book of Revelation provides descriptions of each Church. Ephesus (Revelation ) -- The church known for having labored hard and not fainted, and separating themselves from the wicked; admonished for having forsaken its first love ().
