This curriculum provides a historically accurate, Bible-centered approach to learning the history of the early Church through the Middle Ages. The completely chronological lessons span the continents to shed new light on who walked the earth when, and how God revealed Himself to mankind during this pivotal period of history. (Though highly recommended, it is not necessary for students to complete Volume I before experiencing Volume II.)
Written by a proponent of making the classical method easier to use. The primary research has already been done for you, but the door remains open for further exploration through age-appropriate activities.
Be it a lesson from Germany, China, Zimbabwe, or Iceland, the author leads students to all corners of the globe in the order that major events occurred there. For example, students will discover that soon after St. Patrick delivered the gospel to Ireland, the Western Roman Empire fell in Europe; Mohammed introduced Islam to world about a decade after King Arthur rode with his knights; the Vikings ravaged parts of Europe while the Maori settled New Zealand; and Joan of Arc tragically burned at the stake while the Inkas (Incas) were building their golden empire in South America!

Learn how God continued to reveal Himself to mankind. From the incarnation of Jesus Christ to the spread of the Gospel across the globe, the Lord beckons us and calls us to know Him. Some men bow down to Him; some men don't. But God's purpose remains the same. Whether it is the stories of kings and queens, emperors and samurai, knights and inventors, or poets and commoners, the epic continues to unfold in the Mystery of History Volume II.
