History of the Medieval World; Roman Empire

First of all, this is a dense book. Small text, lots of words. That’s not a problem- it’s actually pretty exciting- but I’m not sure I’ve read anything similar since college!

That said, I’ve already been sucked in. From the constant machinations to the political council brought together to choose what the Bible would look like and to drive out those in power who didn’t believe in the Holy Trinity as one Being. I had, of course, known about the Council at Nicaea and the creed, but had never known the political purposes of Constantine (who still held his pantheistic beliefs at the same time) in several aspects of it.

Learning makes me so very happy.
