"In AD. 381, Theodosius, emperor of the eastern Roman empire, issued a decree in which all his subjects were required to subscribe to a belief in the Trinity of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. This edict defined Christian orthodoxy and brought to an end a lively and wide-ranging debate about the nature of God; all other interpretations were now declared heretical. It was the first time in a thousand years of Greco-Roman civilization that free thought was unambiguously suppressed. Yet surprisingly, the popular histories claim that the Christian Church reached a consensus on the Trinity at the Council of Constantinople in AD. 381. Why has Theodosius's revolution been airbrushed from the historical record?" "In this book, acclaimed historian Charles Freeman shows that the Council of Constantinople was in fact a sham, only taking place after Theodosius's decree had already become law, The Church was acquiescing to the overwhelming power of the emperor - and the council was a cover-up." "Still, the problem ran even deeper. Freeman argues that Theodosius's edict and the subsequent suppression of paganism not only brought an end to the diversity of religious and philosophical beliefs throughout the empire, but created numerous theological problems for the Church - problems which remain unsolved to this day. The year AD. 381, as Freeman puts it, was "a turning point which time forgot.""--BOOK JACKET.
