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, April 1-7, in Church history. They include the birth of a famous Medieval Christian ruler, the first sermon of an Olympic gold medalist winner, and the final sermon of a famed civil rights leader.
