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. 26 to Feb. 1, in Church history. They include the birth of George Beverly Shea, the first general assembly for a Pentecostal denomination, and the excommunication of an early church heretic.
