The Men Who Followed Aurelian: Crisis Continues | 275AD-280AD

The men who followed Aurelian before Diocletian arrives barely kept Rome’s ship afloat, and only continued the Crisis of the Third Century.



The small slew of emperors who followed Aurelian were mostly pieces of work – with one exception – and all but kept the ship afloat before the rise of the immense Diocletian. Indeed we found it important to cover the remaining half of the 270s with our prior focus purely on the five year accomplishments of Aurelian.

The A.D. History Podcast explores the last two thousand years of world history in an innovative new way. Join hosts Paul K. DiCostanzo and Patrick Foote as they examine the past two millennia, beginning in 1 AD, and progressing forward ten years every episode until they reach the modern day. Within each ten-year installment, Paul and Patrick aim to share incredibly important, but often overlooked fascinating historic events and figures from around the world in prospective fashion; attempting to see history through the eyes and in the world of those who lived it. By identifying these sometimes lesser known - but in no way less significant aspects of history - the A.D. History Podcast endeavors to take these many disparate threads and weave a fuller, richer tapestry of true world history from 1AD to HD.
