Chronology extended

A chronology of world Christianity: extended

The chronology has now been extended back in time to cover the Old Testament period from BC 3000 to the birth of Christ. The Chronology home page now shows 8,200 significant Christian and religious events from BC 3000 through to AD 2000.

Search for topics of interest by keyword or by year, or just browse through the centuries.

Chronology entries can also be found and viewed by topic through the "search" mechanism. Enter a term as usual into the seach box and follow the returned Chronology references.

Also this quarter, preliminary results from a major review of pentecostal and charismatic denominations are incorporated for many hundred denominations. Full results for the global renewal movement will follow in coming months.
