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 19-25, in Church history. They include the death of a notable Protestant Reformation figure, the conversion of St. Augustine of Hippo, and the election of Pope Gregory VII.
