Church History Middle Ages Timeline Assignment

Welcome to The Church History Timeline.

The timeline was originally created as a project for a church history class at Covenant Presbyterian Seminary, the seminary for the Presbyterian Church in America (PCA). My intention is to provide a resource for the whole Church. The timeline is intended as an overview, to give "the big picture" of some of the major events in the church in the last couple of millennia.

I've linked keywords in the timeline to the coolest and most useful information I could find on the web. Whenever I could find the text of the documents mentioned, I've linked to those.

If I mention a document or person in the timeline, but do not have it linked to the text, it's because I couldn't find it (or haven't yet, anyway). If you know where it is on the web, please tell me. E-mail suggestions to

Because of the expansive use of links in the timeline, it would be a good idea to click the "Home" button and then bookmark the page. That way you can easily find your way back. The sites that are linked to are all worth mulling over for a while.
