The Building of Christendom: A History of Christendom, volume 2
By Warren H. Carroll
The Building of Christendom, from 324-1100, is the second volume in “The History of Christendom” series. This series is the only in-print, comprehensive narration of Western history written from an orthodox Catholic perspective. How would a historical narrative read if the author began with the first principles that truth exists and the Incarnation happened?
Here is the story of the great heresies that seemed to carry all before them, yet always failed to gain their final goal of capturing the Papacy; of St. Patrick’s mission to Ireland and its glorious fruits; of a lone hero’s last stand against an empire stretching from France to China which began the 770-year war for the reconquest of Spain; of how the Popes became judges of kings and the first crusade swept on to victory against all odds; of how the church bridged the abyss of the Dark Ages and laid the foundations of a new Christian order like nothing the world has see before or since. All Christian countries are covered, with the history of the Popes as the connecting thread.

Building Something Beautiful For God –
To Last A Thousand Years
Our Lady of Clear Creek Abbey is a Benedictine community belonging to the Solesmes Congregation and, like other monasteries of the Solesmes Congregation, is to be counted among the institutes entirely ordered towards contemplation. It was founded in 1999 from the Abbey of Our Lady of Fontgombault in France and is located in the Diocese of Tulsa, Oklahoma. Clear Creek became an abbey in 2010 and counts 55 monks, who devote themselves to God alone in the hidden life, in silence and solitude, in constant prayer and willing penance.
After twenty years of existence, we are happy, by the grace of God, to have completed two large buildings and a sizable portion of our abbatial church. We completed the “Chapter House” in 2023 to accommodate the growing number of monks and provide a Sacristy, Infirmary, classrooms and the Chapter itself. Please help us continue this arduous, but important work for the glory of God.
