#417 – A History of the Catholic Church – No Salvation outside the Church

Continuing political and ecclesiastical conflict in the Western Europe. Donatist and Catholic bishops meet in Carthage, but the results are far from
happy for the Donatists. We take a look at the difference between the theology of the Donatists and Augustine.

Having examined some of the different theologies about the relationship of the Father and the Son in the last episode, now we look at how conflicts over these theologies affected the history of the Church – particularly in the life of Hippolytus who would be known as one of the most influential Fathers of the Church and the first antipope.

In his conflict with Pope Callistus I, we see how conflict over theology touched on the very life of Christian faithful and that even saints could find themselves on opposite sides not just on the nature of God, but also on the nature of the Church.
