    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

    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!

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.

Good information, off-putting presentation

Well-researched and balanced. Perhaps other people would respond better to the presentation than do I, but the presenter needs some coaching from a voice actor. I don’t want to say something cruel about someone who is obviously putting forward such sincere and intelligent effort, but the presentation makes the content very difficult to appreciate.

Barbati ,

Who knew?!

I first gave this podcast a listen when a friend mentioned something about Arianism and I did not know what that was. I became hooked after one episode! This is a truly informative and entertaining podcast. Thanks to Steve for the massive effort this must take!
