In which John Green teaches you about the fall of the Roman Empire, which happened considerably later than you may have been told. While the Western Roman Empire fell to barbarians in 476 CE, the Byzantines in Constantinople continued the Eastern Empire nicely, calling themselves Romans for a further 1000 years. Find out what Justinian and the rest of the Byzantine emperors were up to over there, and how the Roman Empire dragged out its famous Decline well into medieval times. In addition to all this, you'll learn about ancient sports riots and hipster barbarians, too.

It seems like what is happening today in western Europe reflects the fall of the western Roman Empire.
Most foreign people are coming in for money and free stuffs, loyal to those who let them in, and have no plans to assimilate to the new country they have gone into
As a black guy I see where a bunch of guys got war-ready, took over the World and automatically thought their victories symbolized maturity. It was quite the opposite, rulers got to choose religion, anyine with a crew could take over, rulers were always removed brutally, they seemed to have a weird fixation with the same sex, they had this anger (we recognize it today as cloajed fear) that no one could explain, and they weren't about producing prosperous citizens. After building a Country you have to gradually switch control to the intelligent after the military conquers the land, that never happened. They actually tried to steal intelligence from the Israeli underclass and imperialise it (knowledge). Those same type people are Americas underclass who are also looted for their talent and ingenuity. The strict and by the book government we have now is a lesson learned from the loose one in Rome. I.e. Rome was White dominance in it's infantry. Some things are still childish but improvments have been made
Barbarians were anglo saxons, the same ones that eventually came to the US and colonized. Now they say that we non anglo saxons living here are the barbarians, and that we non whites will be the downfall of the west. Expose that hypocracy saxon.
How do you know women wore pants in Roman time? I always understood archaeologists have no idea how women kept their genitals warm in the first millennium. But if you know of a source that indicates women wore pants, please tell me about it. (I like warm genitals too, while working in a archaeological open air museum)
Whatever the case "families that stay together by praying together" the moral decay resulting by not didnt exist so it wouldn't stop the fall of rome (western civilization) n did i hear disillusionment with the government? Well steven spielbergs movies lied to people again didnt they (isnt that where people get the idea life was created by a god). Well scientists say life evolving is scientific fact and i found that out (they give explicit proof) on al gore's internet which is what he wanted it to do. Inform people. 😅moa
I power through your annoying way of speaking to further my education.. But god damn dude.. Stop with the way you end words, I know you do it to try to add some sort of comedic effect. But you need to come to grips with the fact that you ARE NOT FUNNY!!! You're smart, stick with that.. The attempt at comedy is just an annoying distraction.
I watch videos like this, read book and do Google research, but no matter what it seems that there are always people who "thoroughly disagree" with what "experts" have to say. its almost impossible to know the truth of anything. I guess the best I can do is continue to take in information, think critically and draw my own conclusions. oh, and stay away from the comment section.... good luck in life everyone.
Your take on the Council of Nicaea is.... over simplified. It was not meant to unify Christian doctrine, just a single doctrine. The issue was against creeping Gnostic influence within the church, causing Christians to mix traditional Christian doctrine with the Gnostic concept that Jesus was of a different substance than God the Father. The Council just reaffirmed what was always taught while denying the new Gnostic influences.
"This machine kills fascists" Fun to read something like it from a channel that want to teach history. Because it means that by saing you are against fascism and not admitting to be against communism you support the last one.
Which led me to understand that as you support communism you are pratically distorting history to make it more appealing to a certain ideology, or making a fertile soil for certain ideas that follows the ideology.
(Fun to know the communists hate history and their own cultural background)
Sincerely you shouldn't teach history, or any other humanistic and social topics by any mean.
But you know... """"""""free"""""" speak
For all the people who are replying to comment that say that Constantine was born in Naissus modern day Nisa and saying that he wasn't a serb, nobody is saying he was Serb people are just correcting that he wasn't born in modern day Croatia
Byzantium culture what is the production of a Greco World which is all of Europe to undermine Roman law, and everyone knew it. Not that the entire door cool world was bad, but they thought they knew better. There was only one room and Byzantium was not it no matter how many spectacles and games they pushed, everyone knew they were Pretenders
I love your show, but it's the only time I will not agree with you, Byzantium is not Rome. Byzantium is the leftovers of Rome, they were also the worst of the culture which is why they moved East and everyone else who was more idealistic and mainly a ethical religious sense went West, even in the Arab lands they would progress past Byzantine culture, which was a stagnant version of Rome. Constantine didn't want to rebuild the Roman Empire because it was the good thing to do, he wanted to reestablish the Roman Empire to benefit the Byzantium Empire, hence a separate group.... they have to use religion to create order while Rome had discipline, Byz had to use brute force we're even Rome had diplomacy, the Byz treated their neighbors like garbage instead of instituting laws and the worst part, that this was the old Greco world, as well as some Romans who went East because of the wealth in the east and politic. Irony would be that the wealth would be eventually dominated by the West, with its religious capital in Rome, once again not Constantinople or Istanbul, as it is now, and was really the old Greco world that the Romans have conquered before. They were brutes with intellect and the Romans new this, which is why Western Rome accepted the Goths because the goths understood at least the laws, like the Romans that left. Others went east who cared not for the law and like the rest of the indo culture that did not understand law and had to be guided by religious Doctrine, that's how you got the christianization of Central Europe to a degree, because Central Europeans tie to Middle Eastern Asian mysticism that was based on the monotheism of death through Zoroastrianism. Ironically this is where Tolkien gets the two towers Mythos, that's why Byzantine fell because the Arabs also knew it was corrupt and defunct, and that's why the West let them have Constantinople because it was a part of the past that should have died a long time ago. The Romans knew that these people were the reason Rome fell, from the gradual grinding down of republic to empire, and that was the downfall.... Empires exist when Republican or Democratic populations become unruly and participate Less in the Democratic process to create a Republican government and an empirical solution has to be set up to enforce laws in a much harsher tone. this is why Rome was considered to be destroyed from within, the real Romans let's these pathetic citizenry leave, now subjects, leave to the east, as the real Romans knew they weren't deserving of citizenship just subjugation. This is the mindset of most Byzantine modes of thinking, which is animalistic... for even Rome knew it was wrong to eat your own Young, that's why eastern European culture didn't have a problem using their children and other people's children because they're really just animals in their own mind. And that kind of mind Darwinism even justifies killing one's own, that is animal brutality that has no place among Humanity. I can use example of American psycho, in an American movie to explain that no matter how much you dress or address a type of person, sometimes they give into their animal urges and in this case it's a culture, using cases like Darwin to give a basis for social predators, which are really just Psychopaths who won justification and an excuse to kill. what happens when the culture tells a person that they are an animal, and this animal is a predator and so they think like a predator instead of thinking like a human being. This is the only part of European history that I consider a full disgrace, fully develop humans that fall to their animal base. And it's followed us to the United States. That's okay because Europe also has given us the knowledge of how to deal with ease bipedal animal mentalists who prey on their own. I bet you some of these Dunces think the word prey with an E is the same with pray with an A. There's nothing I hate more than a primitive human they had all the access to education.
Is the punishment much harsher for those that do know and also know what they do, compared to those and do not know what they do? And for the ones that do know and still do harm, they are the worst like I said before.
"Byzantine" is a concocted word from Europeans, since they wanted the title "Roman Empire" (See Napoleon's claims to be Charlemagne II!) So let's call it what they did: ROMAN EMPIRE IN THE EAST. Justinian ruled both East and West (from Ravenna) and was last to do so. His Code of Laws were brought to Italy and spread to the rest of Europe as is used today. The civilizing influence of Eastern Roman Empire was experienced in the Renaissance period, as Easterners fled the coming Turkish defeat of Constantinople. Read, learn - and re-learn facts to replace the harangues of Gibbon, et al, and Zosimos whose vitriol against Constantine the Great is still repeated today by historians not researching the original sources. God grant us to know our historical roots, since Christ became part of our History and forever changed the course of all Civilizations and cultures!
Whoa! The section on Agia Sophia, beyond your pronunciation of it (I can't fault you for not having studied Greek, but the Turkish spelling gives you a big hint to pronouncing it better than you have), has some serious problems. It's a masterpiece of Roman engineering, and, although it was converted into a mosque, it is now a museum. Ayasofya Müzesi.
