Testimonies

“It has helped me develop a greater appreciation for the great intellectual tradition of the Church and improved my prayer life. The class worked well with my course load at Purdue so I was able to complete well.”
-Thomas Duane

“All of the readings were accessible and contributed greatly to my own spiritual growth. This course helped me gain confidence to further explore Patristic writings and other church documents.”
– Morgan Hierlmaier

“This program helped answer questions I had about challenging Church teachings regarding redemptive suffering, essence and nature of the Trinity… and the integral need to develop and live in a community centered in Christ.”
– Jeffrey Kuhn

“This has enabled me to better discuss my faith with my peers. Understanding the basis for why and how the Church has evolved over time from the perspective of the original disciples of Christ has given me time and a structure with which to wrestle with questions I have long had concerning my faith.”
– Megan Geraghty

Christendom@ History

Christendom@ was successfully launched with the pilot course, HIST 501/Early Christian Literature, at the St. Thomas Aquinas Catholic Student Center in September of 2018. Transfer credit recognition was awarded by Purdue University that same semester. Additional courses will be layered in during the academic year of 2019-2020. We seek pioneering students willing to help us launch this exciting and important initiative on other campuses.
