Episode 1: The Great Schism- Emperors and Popes
In 1054 an event occurred that split the Christian world. It has never recovered. In this mini series, we dive into the world before the Great Schism, to understand the forces that created the institutions of the Church and then tore them apart. How did we get Popes anyway? Emperors, bishops, and warriors… this is the world at the end of the Roman Empire and the beginning of the Middle Ages.
