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 17-23, in Church history. They include the official opening of Charles Spurgeon’s London church, the death of an influential western monastic, and the banishment of Anne Hutchinson.
