From Roman Empire to Holy Roman Empire
Lecture # 25
March 29, 2020 11:45 am. To 1:00 pm.
This lecture marks the second great transition in our historical survey of Christianity; here, we move from imperial Christianity to medieval Christianity, from the Roman Empire to the Holy Roman Empire. For the most part, this section of the course turns from the East to the West, where we find the Latin language instead of Greek, the pope instead of patriarchs, tribal kings in place of an emperor, and instead of cultural continuity, cultural disruption and creative adaptation. It was in the medieval period, roughly between the 5th and 15th centuries, that Christianity established itself across all of Europe.
