Title: CHRISTIANITY: THE FIRST THOUSAND YEARS- THE FAITH CONQUERS
The Golden Age of Christianity began on January 1st in the year 800 when the Pope placed a crown on the head of the Frankish King Charlemagne, declaring him a new Holy Roman Emperor. This tape details the enlightened reforms that Charlemagne undertook, which lifted Europe from the Dark Ages and established Christianity as the cornerstone of Western civilization. At the same time, military campaigns spread the Word of God through the power of the sword, while monks in the east invented a new alphabet to translate the Bible into Slavic tongues. By the year 1000, all of Europe was part of Christendom. The destruction of the Holy Sepulcher in Jerusalem by Muslim warriors foretold of the violence that was soon to come.
