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, Oct. 7-13, in Church history. They include the opening of Second Vatican, the banishing of Roger Williams from Massachusetts, and the official opening to the public of Rio de Janeiro's Christ the Redeemer Statue.
