Publisher's Description

Essential information on the growth and impact of Christianity from the apostles to the present day in a handy reference Organized century by century, this small yet thorough dictionary goes through the major events, changes, and personalities that have shaped Christian history around the world. Focusing not only on the Western world, it takes a broader survey of global Christianity--for example, the chapter on the 16th century covers not just the Lutheran reformation but also the shift of power in the Orthodox Church from Constantinople to Rome. The result is a highly informative, broad-ranging book.
