The Historical Trend of Church Tithing

There was an ancient rise in tithing, followed by a recent collapse.  We have to understand how tithing has worked (and hasn't worked) through history in order to have a successful program.


This lesson introduces students to the historical trends of Church tithing beginning in the 4th century with Emperor Constantine, the influence of the Catholic Church in the 6th century, its proliferation in the 1500s with the emergence of the Protestant churches, to its present state especially with the Evangelical Church Movement.
