Explore the history of Catholicism from the first century to the present. The Shaping of Christianity closely examines the first four centuries of “the Christian movement” as it developed into a major world religion. The two-volume A History of the Christian Tradition surveys the entire history of Christianity, from its Jewish origins all the way through the pontificate of Pope John Paul II. And C. Colt Anderson’s The Great Catholic Reformers highlights the careers of several remarkable men and women who have contributed to the purification and renewal of the Bride of Christ from Pope Gregory the Great in the sixth century to Dorothy Day in our own time. Rich with all the poignancy of human drama, The Paulist Press Church History Collection offers an in-depth look at Catholicism’s origin, growth, development, and change throughout the last two thousand years.
