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, March 22-28, in Church history. They include the first televised church service in the United States, the birth of controversial televangelist Pat Robertson, and the last English abbey dissolved by King Henry VIII.
