In God's Name? Witch-Hunts, Crusades, and Inquisitions: A Church Historical Apologetic

Hundreds of thousands of witches burned at the stake? Crusaders wading ankle-deep through streets of blood? Torture, dread, and death in the wake of the Inquisition? Popular accounts provide us with a shocking picture of Christianity’s history, and the argument from past failures is a favorite one employed by critics. In this session, we will have a closer look at three specific atrocities typically blamed on the church: 1) Witch-hunts; 2) the Crusades; and 3) the Inquisition. Subjecting these phenomena and the way in which they are usually presented to sober scrutiny, we will not only discover how much truth there actually is to some prevalent charges levelled against the historical impact of the Christian faith, but also learn more about God’s transformative power throughout history by transforming… us.
