Hi everyone,

this week’s session was the last of the first module, ‘Europe yesterday’.

We looked at the last 200 years or so showing the impact of Christian thought on social, political and cultural developments.

Here are the notes and recordings.

The second session includes a video from Francis Schaeffer from 30 years or so ago. Activate the link below to watch this video.
