September 11th; Key Moments in the History of the Catholic Church, with 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. It is a fascinating story of adventure, rebellion, tragedy, and triumph. On one Tuesday evening each month, Father Matt will lead us on an amazing Epic journey to discover the roots of our Catholic faith.
CRUSADES AND SCHOLARS: Our story resumes as we discover 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.
