Here’s a more in-depth description of the DVD:

Homeschool Connections’ Origins of Monasticism DVD is an introduction to the theological and historical origins of Christian monasticism and examines the importance of monasticism in the development of the Church and conversion of Europe.

In this video, Homeschool Connections history tutor Phillip Campbell traces the development of Christian monasticism from the days of the virgin-martyrs of the Roman persecution to the desert fathers of Egypt. Then the viewer moves west to the establishment of Benedictine monasticism throughout Europe, demonstrating how Catholic monasticism was fundamental in building western civilization and bringing the pagan peoples of northern Europe into the Catholic fold. Interspersed with Catechism references, biblical passages, and dramatic retelling of events from the lives of the saints, this video brings Church history alive in a vivid and faith-building format.

Educational enough for adults and older children to enjoy but colorful and comedic enough for younger viewers, Origins of Monasticism is the perfect supplemental resource for families studying the early history of the Catholic Church.
