The Triumph of Christendom

Watching a Gresham College lecture by Keith Ward. Here's the blurb ... Is the medieval church a child of the Roman Empire? Why did sin and atonement come to play so large a part in medieval theology? How did secular power change the church? ... and he says also that the talk is about Catholicism from the 10th to 14the century, original sin, atonement, purgatory and hell. You can read his lecture too here, but I like to watch the talks because they're usually a bit different, and have more jokes. After having listened to the talk, I like Eastern Orthodoxy much more than Catholicism on original sin, atonement, indulgences, and the hell! And Karl Rahner gets a mention too :) ...
