Christendom College professor and historian Steve Weidenkopf will be appearing on EWTN Live with Fr. Mitch Pacwa on July 29 at 8:00 PM EST. Speaking about the Crusades, Weidenkopf will also be recording a show for EWTN Bookmark with Doug Keck on the same topic, which will be released at a later date.
In his highly acclaimed and gripping book, Glory of the Crusades, Weidenkopf, a lecturer in Church history for Christendom College’s graduate school, challenges the widespread notion that the Crusades were barbaric wars of greed and religious intolerance. The Glory of the Crusades replaces such persistent modern biases with a more factual and nuanced—yet no less compelling—vision of Christendom’s 600-year struggle to reclaim the Holy Land.
Weidenkopf is the creator and author of the “Epic: A Journey through Church History” adult faith formation program, which includes a 20-part study on the 2,000 year history of the Church and a 10-part study on the Early Church. He served as the Director of the Office of Marriage & Family Life for the Archdiocese of Denver (2001-2004) and as an advisor to Archbishop Charles J. Chaput, O.F.M. Cap. He holds an MA in theological studies from Christendom College and a BA in International Relations from Syracuse University.
