Season 3, The Root of the Rot, Episode 2: The Beginnings of Modernity (1274-1517 A.D.)

Bishop Daniel Dolan Pastor of St. Gertrude the Great Catholic Church

Bishop Daniel Dolan
Pastor of St. Gertrude the Great Catholic Church

On the last episode of Root of the Rot, we looked at the flourishing and growth of Christendom from its legalization, then endorsement, from the soon-to-die Roman Empire. In this episode, we will examine what happened when kings were more interested in the comings and goings of this life instead of the life to come, the change in art, architecture, and music. We will then look at the dark shadow that Martin Luther cast across all of Christendom. It is extremely important for Catholics today to understand that the problems in both the world and the Church did not simply begin with Vatican II, rather they go very far back in time and marched forward to where we are today. In order to understand the rot, you must get to the root of it.

Join us as His Excellency, Bishop Daniel Dolan, pastor of St. Gertrude the Great Catholic Church in West Chester, Ohio and host Stephen Heiner recount this important part of history that all Catholics should know.
