In Alexander the Great and the Macedonian Empire go beyond the myth to learn about this great military leader and his world In spellbinding lectures you ll enter the world of Alexander and witness the astonishing feats of military genius that made his name renowned for millennia after his death, No description available, No description available, Lectures br An All Encompassing Picture of a Critical Era br br While the Judeo Christian values that have shaped society s ideas are ones we might today take for granted their emergence from an ancient era dominated by loyalties to a vast array of gods would once have seemed the most unlikely of narratives Even after the Roman emperor Constantine converted to Christianity in A D it would not be until the th century reign of Justinian that medieval Christianity would emerge and this new historical pathway would finally be confirmed br br Professor Harl s magnificent course enables you to grasp the full historical sweep of this monumental transition by creating an all encompassing picture of this critically important era While some philosophical and theological content is included to clarify important points of transition the focus of The Fall of the Pagans and the Origins of Medieval Christianity is above all else on its most important and fascinating episodes among which are these br br Emperor Nero s rescript in A D which not only ordered the persecution of Christians in the city of Rome but also made the faith illegal throughout the empire As the first religion ever banned in the Roman world Christianity would be forced to develop new institutions and new ways of spreading its message br The Battle of the Milvian Bridge in A D where Emperor Constantine won a victory described in the only two literary accounts both written by Christian authors as having been deliberately fought under the Christian symbol of the Chi Ro Professor Harl offers a probing analysis of what he believes Emperor Constantine s real motives were for fighting in this battle br The reign of Theodosius I A D to under which laws were passed banning public sacrifice throughout the Roman Empire and making Christianity the only legitimate religion This crucial reign according to Professor Harl signified not only the death knell of Roman paganism but the first steps in the creation of the persecuting society of medieval Europe br New Insights into the Sources of Western Beliefs br br The Fall of the Pagans and the Origins of Medieval Christianity also introduces you to a wide variety of individuals whose actions helped shape the history of this turbulent time including these br br Rulers like Augustus and Justinian whose decisions would define and redefine the relationship between paganism Judaism and Christianity and how Jews and Christians would subsequently respond through words deeds and rituals br Proselytizers for the new faith including James and Paul and the different viewpoints they represented in the development of early Christianity br Religious thinkers such as Clement and Origen who would go on to become the first theologians of the emerging Christian faith br Ascetics such as Saint Anthony and Barsauma a warlike monk said to be so terrifying that he could inspire conversions in the villages of Syria and Phoenicia through the sheer fear raised by his arrival br Philosophical thinkers such as Galen who was also a noted pagan critic of the new Christian faith and thus an active participant in the exchanges with Christian apologists that served to educate and hone the arguments put forth by both sides br You ll also witness Christianity s growing influence on not only the visual arts including architecture and the redesignation of pagan temples for Christian uses but on the world of letters including ironically the preservation of the classical writings of ancient Greece so important to understanding the pagan world
