“The Risen Christ Appearing to Mary Magdalen” by Rembrandt (Dutch, 1606-1669). Rembrandt’s contrast of light and darkness characterized the intense struggle on both sides of the Reformation.

About the CCH Website

Under ConstructionThe CCH website was published on the Internet in March of 1998 in an unfinished state. The site is still unfinished, although in the years it has been up, much has been added to it, and the breadth and depth of the site has increased and expanded greatly. I expect that the site will always be “under construction” as we strive to meet the needs of Christian homeschooling families. Thank you for your patience during this ongoing process.

This website is written in xhtml transitional using cascading style sheets in compliance with W3C standands. W3C standards allow webpages to behave and look the same regardless of the browser with which they are viewed. Netscape 6.0 and Opera 7.0 provide broad support for the W3C standards, and Microsoft IE 6.0 is up and coming. If this website appears strange in your older browser, may I suggest the lean, fast, and free Opera 7.0 browser?

Gregory the GreatThe images adorning the Classical Christian Homeschooling webpages can be viewed more fully by clicking on the image. Credit and links to the images’ home can be found in the description of the images. At the published request of several image archives, the magnified images of all the works on CCH appear at our local server, to reduce bandwidth problems. No images have been used from image archives, such as the Perseus Project, which expressly forbid such use. Although copyrights do not exist for works of art made before 1922, copyrights on photographs of such works do exist. If CCH has unwittingly infringed your photographic copyright, contact us and we will gladly provide photographic credit and a link, or remove an image. Otherwise, all images are displayed here with permission or non-commerical fair use.

The ivory carving of Pope Gregory the Great at his writing desk was a tenth-century book cover, now on display in Vienna, Austria. The Byzantine portrait of Jesus Christ is the “Icon of Christ Pantokrator,” 13th century, from the Byzantine Images Gallery archive at Byzantine Studies on the Internet. The Alexandrian coin contains a portrait of Ptolemy, the ruler of Egypt after Alexander the Great. The Pompeiian noblewoman is from the ruins at Pompeii, Italy. The Persian gold pin is from the reign of Artaxerxes II, ca. 404-359 BC, at the Oriental Institute Museum in Chicago.

About Christine Miller

Pompeiian Noblewoman with Writing TabletClassical Christian Homeschooling is maintained by Christine Miller, a college-educated mother of three who has been homeschooling since 1988. We began implementing classical education in our homeschool in 1997. Our oldest two have graduated, and our youngest is in the rhetoric stage (high school).

Has classical education worked for us? The early indication is that it has. Our oldest scored in the top 15% on her SAT’s, and our other two children routinely score in the 90th% percentile and above in their standardized tests. All children read with post-college level comprehension, and all are responsible and hard-working young men and women at ease with children, their peers, and adults alike, and are dedicated Christians who love the Lord in their own right. Their dad and I are proud of them. :) As a family, we have a heart for missions and the unsaved; love good books, the outdoors, gardening, our friends and extended family, and being together. :)

Icon of Christ PantokratorOur family adheres doctrinally to the Nicene Creed, the foundational creed of the Christian church, and that adherance, of course, is reflected in the pages of this website. Holding fast to the truth of Scripture is our highest concern. We urge every word read on these pages and subsequent links be evaluated in the light of this truth.

Christine has authored two books: All Through the Ages: History Through Literature and The Story of the Middle Ages, published by Nothing New Press, publishers of curriculum which honors the Biblical worldview and the ancient paths (“Thus says the Lord: ‘Stand by the roads, and look, and ask for the ancient paths, where the good way is; and walk in it, and find rest for your souls.’” Jeremiah 6:16, ESV).
