E- Shaping the identities of 'the Christian' and of 'Christianity in the 2nd century.
F- Augustine's challenge of 'the Christian' in Theodosian Society
G- Christian Identity in the Age of Benedict and Gregory the Great
H- Christian Identity in Conflict with Islam, from Timothy of Baghdad to Bernard of Clairvaux
I- Christian Identity with Monks and Scholars in High Middle Ages
