I also would like to have delved a little deeper into some of the the early doctrinal disputes that led to armed conflict at Church councils and even to massacres and purges.

Regarding Hypatia, though, it’s ironic how the current Church proudly trumpets their medieval-era accomplishment in having preserved (however unintentionally) many Classic manuscripts, while entirely overlooking their responsibility for destroying so very much more.
