Text Book: Spirit of Truth: The History of the Catholic Church
Students will explore the history of the Catholic Church beginning with her origins in the beginning of time and institution during the earthly life of Christ, to the period of rapid growth in the apostolic era and the centuries that followed, through the rise and fall of nations, kingdoms, and Empires over the course of two millennia, to the present day. They will come to understand that the Church is Christ’s living Body present and active in the world, proclaiming the Good News of salvation anew to every time and culture, and working to sanctify the human race.
