#472 – A History of the Catholic Church – Barbarian Domination

In the West, the Fall of Roman power in the West meant the domination of Arians in the Kingdom of the Vandals of North Africa, the Kingdom of the Visigoths in Hispania and Gaul and the Kingdom of Odoacer in Italy.
In North Africa, the Nicene Romans experienced severe persecution. In Italy, there was relative religious tolerance.
In Rome, political separation meant greater freedom from the Emperor far away in Constantinople.
