    The Late Byzantine Papacy and Maximus the Confessor

    The Late Byzantine Papacy and Maximus the Confessor

    Episode 99 The Late Byzantine Papacy and Maximus the Confessor
     
    Description: Today, we are going to wrap up the so called Byzantine era of the papacy. This was a time when nearly every pope was eastern in origin and owed his job to the emperor in Constantinople. Things will change dramatically for the popes after this time. We also see some interesting stories, like a bishop of England who came from Tarsus of all places. This is a really transformative, exciting and important time for the Popes of Rome and Christian Church!

    Stubborn Wills and Natures

    Stubborn Wills and Natures

    Episode 98: Stubborn Wills and Natures
     
    Description: Today we are going back to talking about the monotheletism controversy. This was a very difficult time politically and religiously for papacy. The popes had to balance their relationship with the emperors in Constantinople and their local political position along with making sure their theology was correct. It was not an easy time to be pope!

    Episode 97 Early Spanish Christianity
     
    Description: Last episode, we discussed the political history of the Iberian peninsula up to and just past the Islamic conquest. This time, we are going to zoom in on the Christian history of the area of modern day Spain and Portugal up to the same point in history. The Iberian peninsula might be a long way from the land where Christianity was founded, but it would become a heartland of the religion.

Rise of Christianity and the fall of the Roman Empire

This podcast does a really good job explaining the rise of Christianity within the historical context. There aren’t many written sources during the collapsing Roman Empire and the rising of the Christian Church but this podcast provides a lot detail you won’t hear anywhere else.

Everything you ever wanted to know about the history of the Catholic Church and the Popes of Rome

Have you ever wanted to know about Arianism? Nestorianism? Monophysism v. Dyophysitism? How all of this affected the early Church and how the Bishop of Rome became the head of the Roman Catholic Church? Then the History of Papacy Podcast is your huckleberry.
This podcast does a good job of explaining the hows and whys the Papacy is what it is today with some digressions. There are many digressions, almost as many sidetrack episodes as there are narrative ones. Fortunately, Steve and his sidetracking guests are entertaining. Definitely give it a listen.

DaveRam ,

Steve’s got this

This podcast is a key to your understanding of western history and the development of the western Christian church. Steve leaves no stones untouched as he narrates a path through his topics. He’s gotten so good at this. I always have episodes queued up and ready for listening. I got sucked in after listening to the History of Rome and embarking on the history of Byzantium. The History of the Papacy provides context to some of the greatest events in western history. His side track episodes are a must. Thanks for doing this, Steve!
