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, Sept. 16-22, in Church history. They include the death of an infamous inquisitor, a major battle between Protestants and Catholics, and the execution of the last 8 people accused of witchcraft in the Salem Witch Trials.
