Byzantium and the Holy Roman Empire
Christianity in the 7th and 8th CenturiesStreaming Video - 2007
Part one of this program contrasts the ill health of Rome and its Church with the spiritual and material vitality of Byzantium. But all was not well even in the east, as war with Persia and the rise and swift spread of Islam made the Holy Land off-limits, while arguments about the nature of Christ continued to split the Christian world. Part two focuses on the conversion of the Saxon tribes first by Bishop Boniface-the Apostle of Germany-and then by King Charlemagne, who was crowned Holy Roman Emperor by Pope Leo III.
