ALIR - From Chaos to Charlemagne

Continuing his Fall class, the instructor examines some of the reasons for the fall of the Western Empire and ascendance of the Eastern Empire. The failures of Emperors Justinian I through Heraclius will be discussed, as will be the performance of the "Christian Citadel" of Emperors Constans, Constantine IV, Justinian II and Leo III. The class will continue with the rise of the Carolingian Dynasty to which Charlemagne gave his name.
