You will first need to choose a heresy or council. Options include Arianism, the Council of Chalcedon, the Council of Nicea, and Nestorianism.

The best place to look for these particular topics is in a database called Theological Journal Library. To find and use this database, please follow these instructions:

  1. Go to the library home page.
  2. In the top middle-right of the page there is a heading called Collections. Click on this heading and select "Databases" from underneath Electronic.
  3. Look on the left side of the page under Browse by Subject. Scroll down this list and click on "Religion & Philosophy."
  4. On the next page is a list of databases related to philosophy and religion. Scroll down and find the link for Theological Journal Library. Click on this database.
  5. Once you've opened the database, look on the right under Journals Menu. Click on the link for "Search Journals."
  6. This brings you to a page with a search bar. Use the search bar to type in your terms, for example: Arianism. Then search.
  7. All of the results in this database are scholarly. Click on the red article title links to open the full articles. Examples of relevant articles include: "The Doctrine of the Trinity: Its Historical Development and Departures" and "Athanasius and the Arian Controversy."
