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, May 24-30, in Church history. They include England passing measures to tolerate Protestant groups, an edict condemning Martin Luther, and Archbishop of Canterbury recognizing King Henry VIII's second marriage as valid.
