In this first episode of season four of the A.D. History Podcast, we begin laying the foundations for the monumental leap forward Christianity is about to experience under the rule of Constantine. However, Constantine is not in power yet… Indeed before Christianity is to enjoy the fruits of it’s most powerful benefactor thus far in our show, much darker times are ahead. Namely in the form of an individual we have become very familiar with in our show, one Emperor Diocletian who undertakes perhaps the most systematic repression against Christianity throughout the history of Rome itself.
We also have the opportunity to travel subject wise into a history of a country many of us at least know exists, but in general know very little about. In our final segment for this episode, Patrick discusses the history of the micro state San Marino, whose history in fact initially hails from this very decade in question.
