This chapter asks the question, “What makes a Christian?” Definitions of conversion and Christianization are reviewed, as are “paganism” and the origin of the word “pagan.” The focus is an examination, from the Roman Catholic viewpoint in particular, of the role of doctrine and dogma in claiming Christianity.

Keywords:   Christian, doctrine, dogma, pagan, paganism, Roman Catholic, Church
