The Glory of Christendom: A History of Christendom, volume 3
By Warren H. Carroll
The Glory of Christendom, from 1100-1517, is the third 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?
This volume presents the glory of the High Middle Ages: the flowering of Christian civilization which produced saints and heroes, Popes, kings and queens, philosophers and architects whose achievements glow like beacons across the centuries. This was the age of a united and triumphant Christendom–the age of St. Bernard of Clairvaux, St. Francis of Assisi, St. Dominic, and St. Catherine of Siena; of St. Thomas Aquinas and the Gothic cathedrals; of the crusading kings Richard the Lion Hearted and St. Louis IX.

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.
