    The Imperial Church -- Constantine, Part 3 (The History of Christianity #82)

    in Christianity

    Our History of Christianity Scripture verse today is Psalm 37:37 which reads: "Mark the perfect man, and behold the upright: for the end of that man is peace."


    Our History of Christianity quote today is from Joseph Addison. He said: "The Christian religion made its way through Paganism, unassisted by the force of human power, and as gentle as the triumphs of light over darkness."


    Today, in the History of Christianity, we are looking at "The Imperial Church - Constantine" (Part 3) from Dr. Justo L. Gonzalez's fine book, The Story of Christianity (Volume 1).


    "It may well have been during his campaign against Licinius that Constantine became aware of the strategic value of Byzantium. That city was at the very edge of Europe, where it almost touched Asia Minor. Thus, it could serve as a bridge between the European and the Asian portions of the empire. Furthermore, if properly fortified, Byzantium would control the Bosporus, through which all shipping had to pass in its way from the Mediterranean to the Black Sea. A peace treaty made with Persia several decades earlier was about to expire, and the emperor felt the need to establish his headquarters near the Eastern border. But at the same time the Germanic tribes on the Rhine were always a threat, and therefore it would not be wise for the emperor to settle too far from the West. For all these reasons, Byzantium seemed the ideal location for the new capital. Constantine's choice - for which he took no credit, claiming that he was following instructions from God - proved to be most wise, for the city that he founded would play a strategic role for centuries to come."

    The Imperial Church -- Constantine, Part 2 (The History of Christianity #81)

    in Christianity

    Our History of Christianity Scripture verse today is Romans 13:1 which reads: "Let every soul be subject unto the higher powers. For there is no power but of God: the powers that be are ordained of God."


    Our History of Christianity quote today is from Eusebius. He said: "Constantine saw with his own eyes the trophy of a cross of light in the heavens, above the sun, and bearing this inscription: conquer by this. At the sight, he himself was struck with amazement and his whole army also."


    Last time, in the History of Christianity, we looked at "The Imperial Church - Constantine" (Part 1).


    Today, in the History of Christianity, we are looking at "The Imperial Church - Constantine" (Part 2) from Dr. Justo L. Gonzalez's fine book, The Story of Christianity (Volume 1).


    The truce lasted until 322 AD, although there was an ever-increasing tension between the two emperors. The main reason for conflict was still the ambition of both men, which found expression in the question of what titles and honors were to be given to their sons. But by the time war finally broke out, the question of religious policy had also become a bone of contention.


    Licinius' religious policy needs to be clarified, for after Constantine's victory some Christian writers, in order to justify his actions against Licinius, made the latter appear in a bad light. For a number of years after the Edict of Milan, Licinius took no measures against Christians. Actually, a contemporary Christian writer, in telling the story of Licinius' victory over Maximinus Daia, makes it sound very similar to Constantine's victory over Maxentius - including a vision. But Christianity in Licinius' territories was divided over a number of issues, and such divisions led to public disorders...

    Memoriam St. Anthony of the Desert, Abbott Dominican Chant/Rite

    in Christianity

    St. Anthony is the favorite Saint of my favorite Saint, St. Athanasius, Patriarch of Alexandria, Egypt. St. Anthony lived from 285 to 365 AD.  As such he experienced the Apostolic Church of Martyrs of the First and Second Centuries and in 312 the Edict of Milan, first Official Tolerance and then Establishment of Catholicism as the official religion of the Roman Empire now under the auspices of the first Catholic Emperor, Constantine the Great. With the best of intentions (my grandmother Gertrude always said the road to Hell is paved with good intentions) Constantine ended persecution of the Catholic Church at various times and places in the Roman Empire by previous Emperors such as first Nero and finally Diocletian. Leaving the Pope behind in Rome when Constantine moved the center of the Empire to Constantinople- formerly a fifth century BC Greek colony Byzantium, Constantine without malice with the best of intentions manufactured the heresy of ceasaropapism where as emperor he is defender and head of the official religion just as it was with the official Roman gods and Nero and Diocletian persecuting disloyal Catholics refusing to burn incense to the  gods. St. Anthony at 18 went into the desert surrounding the Egyptian Nile Delta around Alexandria. In the Life Of Anthony, St. Athanasius portrays Anthony's battle against Satan and his minions through prayer, fasting, and self-sacrifice in Divine Service of God. St. Anthony emerges from the catecombs analogously resurrected here and now in Holiness to be the Patriarch-Abbott- of Monks a rule giver unto holiness. The Rules' chanting 150 Psalms has the Mass as the anchor for the monks common life . St. Benedict two hundred years later having gone East would transplant the Rules of Anthony and St. Basil the Great West to Italia through The Rule of St. Benedict.

    Mission to the Gentiles (Part 4)

    in Religion

    Our Scripture passage today is Matthew 10:2-4 which reads: "Now the names of the twelve apostles are these; The first, Simon, who is called Peter, and Andrew his brother; James the son of Zebedee, and John his brother; Philip, and Bartholomew; Thomas, and Matthew the publican; James the son of Alphaeus, and Lebbaeus, whose surname was Thaddaeus; Simon the Canaanite, and Judas Iscariot, who also betrayed him."


    Our quote today is from Tertullian. He said, "It is our care for the helpless, our practice of lovingkindness, that brands us in the eyes of many of our opponents. 'Only look,' they say, 'look how they love one another' (they themselves being given over to mutual hatred). 'Look how they are prepared to die for one another' (they themselves being readier to kill each other). Thus had this saying become a fact, 'Hereby shall all men know that ye are My disciples, if ye have love one to another.'"


    Today, we are discussing "Mission to the Gentiles" (Part 4) from Justo L. Gonzalez's fine book, The Story of Christianity (Volume 1).


    Let's continue looking at The Apostles: Facts and Legends
    Late in the second century, a development took place that greatly hinders the task of the historian who seeks to discern the later career of the apostles. The churches in every important city began claiming apostolic origins. In its rivalry with Rome and Antioch, the church in Alexandria felt the need to have a founder with apostolic connections, and thus the tradition appeared that Saint Mark had founded the church there. Likewise, when Constantinople became a capital city in the empire, its church too needed apostolic roots, and thus it was claimed that Philip had preached in Byzantium, the ancient site on which Constantinople was later built.
