February 7th Key Moments in the History of the Catholic Church
Our host: Father Matt
IF YOU WERE ASKED ABOUT…..The Crusades, the Inquisition, the “Dark Ages”, the Galileo Affair, WHAT WOULD YOU SAY?
As Catholics, we are heirs to a remarkable heritage. The history of our Faith is so much more than just a list of facts and dates. It is a fascinating story of adventure, rebellion, tragedy, and triumph. A story 2000 years in the making, one word best describes Catholic history: EPIC. On one Tuesday evening each month, Father Matt will lead us on an amazing journey to discover the roots our Catholic faith.
February 7th CRUSADES AND SCHOLARS
It is time to learn the TRUE story of the Crusades. How many were there and what was the motivation. This evening we learn about El Sid against the Moors in Spain, the formation of the Order of Knight’s Templar and the Crusades against Saladin in Jerusalem. Against this backdrop we see the rise of the Mendicant Orders: St Francis, St. Clare and St. Dominic and the scholastic period of St. Thomas Aquinas and St. Albert the Great. An Exciting period; learn more with Fr. Matt.
