Deep in History

Christianity is a historical Faith. Christianity is rooted in the historical facts of Jesus’s life. The Church, which is His Body, has lived, grown, and matured in space and time. A powerful way to come to know more deeply Jesus Christ and His Church is through the study of history, both biblical and post-biblical.

Conference Talks

The Deep in History Conference was an event hosted by The Coming Home Network between 2003 and 2011 which focused on bringing together expert speakers on various themes and eras of Christian History. With an eye to the upcoming 500th anniversary of the Protestant Reformation, the goal of the conferences was to provide historical insight into the authority and apostolic continuity of the Catholic Church as well as the roots and repercussions of the schism.
