Christianity is a faith with a long and detailed history, with numerous events of lasting significance occurring throughout the ages.

Each week brings the anniversaries of great milestones, horrid tragedies, amazing triumphs, telling tribulations, inspirational progress, and everything in between.

Here are just a few things that happened this week, June 24-30, in Church history. They include the birth of the author of "Dark Night of the Soul," the First Crusade advancing into Asia Minor, and the Lutherans presenting the Augsburg Confession.
