CCM "Summer School": Episode 1 - Heresy
CCM "Summer School" is a 10-part podcast series dealing with Church history that will be released weekly over the summer. Each episode will look at a different heresy in the history of the Church, who the major players were, what the heresy taught, and how the Catholic Church responded. By learning about how the Church responds to heresies, we will learn about the development of doctrine and come to a better understanding of the Catholic faith today. Episode 1 is an introduction to the idea of "heresy" and a basic overview of what the rest of the series will be covering.
