Join us as Garry of the History in the Bible Podcast and Steve explore alternative historical scenarios within early Christianity, focusing on potential impacts if Marcionism or Manichaeism had predominated over orthodox Christianity. Garry and Steve delve into the history and principles of these movements, their potential to reshape Christian doctrine by excluding Judaic elements or integrating with other religions, and the socio-political consequences within the Roman Empire. In this conversation we also touch on the role of Constantine in legalizing Christianity, the influence of Arianism, and how different religious trajectories could have affected the spread of Islam in Europe.
