Students of theology should be aware that there are two great traditions of Christian theology, that of the Eastern Church and that of the Western Church. In the early Christian centuries, the cultural centre of Christianity was in the East, where theology gave its attention the great mysteries of faith, the Incarnation and the Trinity. In the West, theology of early centuries was concerned with pragmatic issues such as Church unity and discipline. The first great issue debated in the West (in the 4th to 5th centuries) concerned the Grace of God in the life of Christians. This practical approach found a remarkable expression in the Monastic Movement, which contributed so much to the development of a Christian civilization in the West.
