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, Jan. 27-Feb. 2, in Church history. They include the death of Charlemagne, a notable Anabaptist leaving Catholicism, and an honor being bestowed on the author of the famous song “The Battle Hymn of the Republic.”
