Looking back at 1,500 years of history - from the fall of Rome until the fall of the guillotine - as seen through the eyes of the kings and queens of France... Every episode of T+M starts with a re-telling of a story pulled from the history books, then we try to figure out what really happened: 1) Did two Queens take charge of Francian kingdoms and use them to attack each other? 2) Was Merovech, the first king of the Merovingians, descended from a minion sent by the god Neptune? 3) Did Clovi ...

Description: The International Congress of Coptic Studies does not usually make waves in mass media or popular culture. But at the group’s 2012 meetings in Rome, unbeknownst to most of the attendees, Harvard professor Karen King had a big announcement planned in conjunction with her scheduled lecture. Now begins the drama of the Gospel of Jesus’ Wi…
 
Description: Moses had a great career, but he wasn’t able to enter the Promised Land. The Old Testament picks up the rest of the story with the person who would lead the chaotic, violent and sometimes boring narrative of the Hebrew people’s conquest of the Canaan. Come and listen as Garry Stevens and I take you on a guided tour of the Book of Joshu…
 
Description: Today’s episode is my introduction to a series I am doing on the development of book culture in Christianity. The end goal is to look at how the book as a way of presenting and disseminating information helped spread Christianity from its very beginnings all the way today. This is really a look at the history of book production, public…
 
This week we’re picking up where we left off last season, with the arrival of Chlothar II onto the throne of the unified Franks in 613. As we can tell from the first part of our story, the deal he cut to get the throne probably sounded amazing. After all, in 612, Chlothar II was the ruler of the smallest kingdom in Francia and little threat, econom…
 
Chlothar II needed a new place to sit, a throne befitting his station as the new King of the Franks. He already had a throne that was to his liking in his original palace in Neustria, but now that he had won the crowns of Austrasia and Burgundy, he wanted to commission a piece that would, in no uncertain terms, tell the world that he was the new so…

Description: Today, we delve into one of the most important parts of day to day religion. The liturgy or mass is how day to day people engage in their religion. We are going to look at the foundations of the Christian liturgy and one of the most important sources for early liturgical practices, The Travels of Etheria. We will also talk about this f…
 
Welcome back! I’m Benjamin Bernier… and we’re supposed to be on break, right? Well, yes, we are, but I’ll be honest: this show is never far from my mind. While we’ve been on hiatus and had a short amount of time to catch our breath and pull ourselves away from the overall narrative, we’ve had the chance to talk over some of the things we’d like to …
 
Episode 101 The Top 7 Heresies of Christianity Part 2 Description: Our goal for this episode is to discuss the top 7 heresies of Christianity. Some of the heresies we will discuss happened before the late 700s/early 800’s and some had their beginnings in this time period and grew through the ages. We’ll talk about Gnosticism, Christology and much m…
 
This week we’re going to take a look at Chlothar II and the first part of his reign pre-dating 613. He really was – and this is just my opinion here – the luckiest guy I have ever heard of. I mean, he was basically born a king. His dad died four months into his life, so there was never a moment in time that he would be able to remember where he was…
 
Episode 100 The Top 7 Heresies of Christianity Part 1 Description: In the next two episodes, we will look at the top 7 heresies of Christianity. Some of the heresies we will discuss happened before the late 700s/early 800’s and some had their beginnings in this time period and grew through the ages. We’ll talk about Gnosticism, Christology and much…
 
Episode 99 The Late Byzantine Papacy and Maximus the Confessor Description: Today, we are going to wrap up the so called Byzantine era of the papacy. This was a time when nearly every pope was eastern in origin and owed his job to the emperor in Constantinople. Things will change dramatically for the popes after this time. We also see some interest…
 
Episode 98: Stubborn Wills and Natures Description: Today we are going back to talking about the monotheletism controversy. This was a very difficult time politically and religiously for papacy. The popes had to balance their relationship with the emperors in Constantinople and their local political position along with making sure their theology wa…
 
There are moments in life where, once they’re done, you sit back and reflect on just how it was that you arrived at that moment in the first place. For me, I had one of those moments a few nights back when I had the chance to sit down and talk with Marco Cappelli from the Storia d’Italia podcast. You see, I could go way back in my life and talk abo…
 
Episode 97 Early Spanish Christianity Description: Last episode, we discussed the political history of the Iberian peninsula up to and just past the Islamic conquest.

This episode, we’re going to move between all three of our main subjects, Fredegunda, Brunhilda and Guntram; by the time we’re done, we’re going to see power shift yet again and, by the end, one of these three will be exiting the scene. As far as Fredegunda: despite her extremely brutal personality, she remains one of those people who inspired the …

Episode 92: The Q Source with Garry Stevens Description: Today, I am joined once again by the indomitable Garry Stevens of the History in the Bible Podcast. In this episode, we tackle one of the most challenging aspects of the New Testament, the Q Source. Q is what might be called the “missing link” of the Gospels. It could very well be the source …
 
Brunhilda had everything. As a Visigothic princess she had been raised to appreciate the finer things in life, to enjoy learning, and to know how to use her position and authority to influence those around her. As a Frankish queen, she was put in a place where she was beheld as a wonder by all around her, even her husband and his staff, as she dazz…

Extra special thanks this week to Henry at the History of the British Isles podcast! Look for our interview together at: https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/the-history-of-the-british-isles/id1384286703 This week we are going to turn our focus on the last two sons of Clovis, Childebert and Chlothar. And to be honest, I’m going to give Childebert …
 
This story from Procopius was particularly salient to our current discussion about the early Merovingians - and honestly, it was just kind of fun insofar as story-telling goes - but it was too long to include in its entirety in our last episode. This left me with the idea that I wanted to share this story with my listeners, but didn't want to crush…
 
This week’s episode explores the reigns of Theuderic’s lineage, Kings Theudebert and Theudebald of Austrasia. I know this is supposed to be a “sons” of Clovis episode, and Theudebert is a grandson and Theudebald is a great-grandson, but I would point out that the former, Theudebert, was born in 504. Childebert was born in 496, and Chlothar was born…
 
This week we’re going to explore the relationships between the last three sons of Clovis, as well as the relationships with their potential successors. If you think about it, the Kingdom of Francia could easily have ended up in fractals if each of Clovis’s sons split their share of the kingdom into equal parts to then bequeath to their sons. Chloth…

This week we’re going to explore the Frankish war in Burgundy and the fallout from the death of Clovis and Clotilde’s son Chlodomir. Remember, this war may have been fought by Clovis’s boys, but it was instigated for any number of reasons by the great king’s wife. In the end, it would be her who would experience, more than almost anyone else who su…
 
Episode 90: The History of Italy with Marco Cappelli Description: I am really excited for today’s conversation with Marco Cappelli of the Storia d’Italia podcast.

This is T+M's first ever bonus episode! This week we're going deep on one of the people we have often talked about, but never had the opportunity in the narrative to explore as well as we should have. January 3 is celebrated by the Catholic Church as the feast day of Saint Genevieve, making now the perfect time to talk about this fascinating woman …
 
This week we’re going to explore what exactly happened after Clovis’s ended his 30-year reign and passed the torch to his sons Theuderic, Chlothar, Chlodomir and Childebert. Theuderic was Clovis’s oldest child by nearly a decade. He was born around 487, just a year or so after his father led his army to victory against Syagrius in Soissons. Not muc…
 
Episode 89: A Very Cadaver Synod Christmas Description: What is a better way to ring in the season of celebration than talking about the Cadaver Synod. This is a very low time in the papacy were the dead body of a pope was posthumously put on trial for various crimes and misdemeanors. Max Gulker AIER has come on to help us figure out how this could…
 
Clovis never passed a day in his life as King without thinking about how he could expand his Kingdom and provide loot and booty to the lieutenants he trusted to burnish his hold on power. However, Clovis was pragmatic enough to sense that there were times when he could get more by using his brain rather than his brawn. The most obvious example of t…

ST 78 – Daniel, What a Proto-Revelation! Description: Garry and I are at it again. We take a look at one of the most iconic books of the bible, the Book of Daniel. The early Christians loved it, Jews not as much, but still included it in their canon. Today, Garry leads us on a deep dive into the Book of Daniel. We explore the context and background…
 
Clovis had taken all of the steps he needed by the year 500 to set the stage for the Franks to go from being a small regional tribe in the north to being the preeminent power in post-Roman Gaul. His conversion to Catholicism earned him support from Gallo-Romans living in Arian Christian areas, and would also draw the attention of the Byzantine Empe…
