In this episode of the History of the Papacy podcast, we welcome Professor Levi Roach author the Book Empire of the Normans to discuss the Normans and their impact on the papacy. Professor Roach is a historian of the early medieval period, with a particular focus on the Norman conquest of England and its aftermath. The Normans were a group of people who originated from the region of Normandy in France. They played a significant role in the history of the papacy, both as invaders and as allies. Professor Roach provides insight into the Norman conquest of England and how it affected the papacy, as well as the role of Norman popes, such as Pope Leo IX and Pope Urban II, in shaping the papacy. The Normans were not just military conquerors; they also had a significant impact on the arts, culture, and architecture of the regions they conquered. Professor Roach discusses the Norman style of art and architecture, which was a blend of Norman and local influences, and how it spread throughout Europe. The papacy was not immune to the Normans' influence, and Professor Roach highlights the ways in which the Normans shaped the papacy, including the creation of the Norman kingdom of Sicily, which became a significant ally of the papacy in the struggle against the Holy Roman Empire. The Normans played a crucial role in shaping the history of the papacy and Europe as a whole. Professor Roach provides valuable insight into the Normans' impact and their legacy, which continues to this day. #HistoryOfThePapacy #Normans #MedievalHistory #EuropeanHistory #PopeLeoIX #PopeUrbanII #NormanConquest #NormanArchitecture #NormanArt #NormanKingdom #Sicily #HolyRomanEmpire #Podcast.
