#426 – A History of the Catholic Church – The Tractoria of Zosimus

Pope Zosimus’ attempt to navigate the Pelagian Controversy runs up against the desires of the North African bishops, the bishops of Italy and Emperor Honorius. After Zosimus’ death, the Church of Rome again divides over his successor. A new figure rises to confront Augustine on the importance of free will.

    Towards the end you mentioned that all christians had the right to vote their bishop. It makes me happy to learn that woman had the right to vote in the ancient church – or was that a mistake and merely half of the christians could vote? Were there any other restrictions who could vote – like property, education etc?
