1. Outline the development of the Christian doctrine of the Trinity from the New Testament Church to the Nicene Creed.
A research paper involves both the gathering of information and developing a student’s own
interpretation of that information. The student must stay focused on his or her chosen topic and
rely upon his or her sources for information about that topic. While a student’s own opinions about
a topic are an important part of any research process, the student must be able to support his or
her conclusions by direct reference to sources.
2) The writing must be clear, logical, and as free of spelling and grammatical errors as possible. A
student should never submit a paper without rereading and proofing it. It may even be necessary
to get someone to assist in this process by having him or her read the paper and check for
mistakes. The student should not fail to run spell-check on his or her writing.
Please remember that easily correctable spelling and grammatical mistakes left uncorrected will
result in significant loss of points.
3) This paper requires MLA formatting that includes:
a. 12-point font
b. double-spaced sentences
c. title and personal identification
d. a separate works cited page properly formatted
e. specific bibliographical form for print and electronic sources in your works cited
f. a specific form for parenthetical (in-text) citations of the sources listed in your works cited
