The Councils, Episode 9: Second Council of Constantinople, Part I

In this episode Father Arnold Trauner and host Stephen Heiner will discuss the backdrop to the 2nd Council of Constantinople. It turns out, Monophysitism just wouldn’t go away. Key ideas to understand from this episode include:

  • The machinations that get Pope Vigilius into office, over the bodies of two of his predecessors
  • The “Three Chapters” and why they matter
  • The neverending interference of Emperor Justinian and his wife Theodora
  • Why silence is sometimes a necessary tactic in leadership
