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, and everything in between.

Here are three things that happened this week, Aug. 9-15, in Church history. They include the ordination of the future John XXIII, the Nazis killing a Catholic saint, and a king ordering the burning of the books of John Milton.
