Mike Woodruff


In the last episode, Mike discussed the fall of Rome and offered a quick summary of the arch of Western Civilization.  In today’s podcast we pick up 125 years after Nicaea. The barbarians now control growing sections of the West – which hopes that the East will come to their rescue. But they do not, in part because the emperor there – a man named Theodosius - is trying to stay on top of a religious dispute. One that deals yet again with our understanding of Christ, and one that will be addressed in the topic today, the Council of Chalcedon.
