ST 76 Quo Vadis with The Partial Historians

Sidetrack Episode 76 ST 76 Quo Vadis with The Partial Historians Description: Today I have a really special episode I recorded with the great hosts of the podcast The Partial Historians. Dr. Greenfield and Dr. Radford are not only experts in the Roman Empire, they also know a thing or two about film. You will hear a conversation about the movie Quo Vadis. This is a great movie from the Golden Age of Hollywood. Doctors Greenfield and Radford show us many of the great parts of this film, the history behind the movie and some of the background of the film itself. This conversation was a great time. The movie has some serious issues, but it also stands up pretty well. Spend an hour or so with me and the Partial Historians learning about the movie and then 3 and a half more hours to enjoy the movie itself. It is a whole day well spend!

Episode 21: Ante-Nicene Popes Part 2

The second part of our tour of the popes before the Council of Nicaea will start in a fairly stable situation where Christianity was largely tolerated, but we will quickly move into the first formal, centralized persecution of the Christian Church. The third centry of the common era was not a great time to live in the Roman Empire, especially as a Christian. We are right around the corner from Constantine, but it will be a rough ride to get there.You can learn more about the History of Papacy and subscribe at all these great places:http://atozhistorypage.com/email: mailto:steve@atozhistorypage.comhttp://rss.acast.com/historyofthepapacyAgora: www.agorapodcastnetwork.com Support this show http://supporter.acast.com/historyofthepapacy.  See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.
