Medellín, Colombia -- Appointments with history

For the past five years, cycles of classes on world history have been held at the Elarvi Cultural Center in Medellín. Each week, over the course of 15 sessions, those attending review the principal events that have marked the history of past centuries. Students from various universities in Medellín, including the Bolivariana and the Antioquia School of Engineering, have taken part. Topics covered include the Catharist movement, the Protestant reformation, the Enlightenment, the French Revolution, the development of science, and the colonization of the Americas. The sessions place special emphasis on the role of Christians in each of these periods of history.
