#368 – A History of the Catholic Church – Divided Empire/Divided Church

While the Trinitarian Controversy focused on the relationship of the Son of God to the Father, the growing Christological Controversy will focus on the relationship of the Son of God to humanity. The rise of the Apollinarian Heresy brings with it the next major threat to Christian unity. In the West, Ambrose becomes bishop of Milan and Valentinian goes to his heavenly reward. In the East, Basil continues to struggle against Valens.

#360 – A History of the Catholic Church – Depicting the Power of Christ

After the death of Julian, we look at the brief reign of Jovian as well as important expressions of Christian culture at this time. The poetry of Faltonia Betitia Proba shows how Christians were able to use the styles of pagan authors such as Virgil to express Christian teaching. The Dogmatic Sarcophagus and the Sarcophagus of Junius Bassus show developments in the Christian representation of Jesus Christ and the Trinity.
