The Fall and Rise of Rome

Description: Today we have a special episode called the Fall and Rise of Rome. I prepared and recorded this episode for Robin Pierson and it originally was published on his History of Byzantium podcast feed. Someone had a question for him about what was happening in Rome and western Europe during the early Byzantine period. I looked at how the decline of the political Roman Empire in the west corresponded with the rise of Christianity and the Papacy in the west. I also discuss the demographics and state of the actual city of Rome during this period. I think you will really enjoy. This episode is a nice review and launch to the next phase of the early medieval period we are getting into.
