Gilbert Keith Chesterton was a prolific writer on many topics. His views of history were always from the standpoint of men and their interactions, and it may fairly be said he saw all of history as a battle between civilization and barbarism. So it has always been, and that remains true even today.“But it is especially in the matter of the Middle Ages that the popular histories trample upon the popular traditions. In this respect there is an almost comic contrast between the general informat ...

How were they made, and by whom? And what d…
 
I’m going to begin this episode with a famous quote from Edward Gibbon, from his massive work, the History of the Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire: The decline of Rome was the natural and inevitable effect of immoderate greatness...... The story of its ruin is simple and obvious; and instead of inquiring why the Roman empire was destroyed, we s…
 
In 1509, at just seventeen years old, Henry VIII was crowned King of England. Over the next four decades, he would burn through six marriages, bankrupt his nation, and vandalise his country’s cultural heritage in his quest for supreme power. But how did England’s most eligible bachelor degenerate into a bloated despot, and one of the worst husbands…
 
As the smoke clears after the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor, the blame game begins. President Roosevelt knows that military and intelligence heads must roll, but questions remain about who should be held to account. So what were the longer term consequences of the attack? How did life change for Japanese-Americans, and what fates awaited the Japa…
 
Chaos reigns in the immediate aftermath of the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor. While the true extent of the damage to personnel and fleet is still uncertain, those on the ground work tirelessly to help the wounded. But what is the response of those in charge?

How did the Japanese pull off such an audacious stealth attack? And how were the …
 
In 1917, revolution changed Russia forever. Putting an end to 300 years of the Romanov dynasty, it made way for what ordinary Russians believed would be a fairer, more egalitarian system. But what sparked the rebellion? What was it like to witness the collapse of the autocracy? And once the smoke had cleared, what happened to the promise of a new s…
 
The Titanic was the largest moveable object in history: almost 900 feet long, and holding over two thousand passengers. But just four days into its maiden voyage, a collision with an iceberg was enough to send her to the bottom of the Atlantic Ocean. So what made the famously ‘unsinkable’ ship anything but? Who was responsible for so many deaths? A…
 
There’s really no debate that Jesus was one of the most important people in all of history, but there are two ways to look at that. On the one hand, his life, death, and resurrection definitely started one of the world’s largest and most influential religions. Even those who do not claim to be Jesus’ followers are aware of that. But the other way t…
 
In two places in the the New Testament, the Apostle Paul uses the phrase, ‘in the fullness of time,’ to indicate that in some way, the time was ripe for the Messiah to arrive. Paul doesn’t explain what he meant, but I think we can come up with some ideas. We’ll come back to that thought, the idea that the time when Jesus lived was not accidental.…
 
For almost two hundred years, the Knights Templar were one of the most fearsome military forces in the world.

But who were the men who devoted themselve…
 
So last episode we left Julius Caesar lying on the floor in a pool of blood. Some in the Senate were very happy about this, but generally speaking, most of Rome liked Caesar, and were not happy about it. The Senators who assassinated him had a clear picture of what they didn’t want: a tyrant ruling over them. But they did not have a clear picture o…
 
For thirteen years from 1920, the manufacture, sale, and transportation of alcoholic drinks was banned in the USA.

And how did it change the face of the country it sought to …
 
When five men are caught inside a Washington DC office block in June 1972, it’s noted in police records simply as a ‘burglary’. So how does this bungled break-in go on to unravel a web of corruption and conspiracy, shatter America’s trust in its leadership, and topple President Richard Nixon, the most powerful man in the world? This is a Short Hist…
 
While British women had been requesting the right to vote for decades, in the early 1900s, the Suffragettes refused to take no for an answer. But despite their PR expertise, as their methods became more violent, theirs was a movement that divided the nation. But what radicalized them? Were they revolutionaries? Terrorists? Or simply an oppressed ma…

On the border between the Western world and the Soviet Union, the Berlin Wall was a symbol of the Cold War.

But what was its purpose? How did it impact the peopl…
 
For over six hundred years the Ottoman Empire ruled swathes of the Middle East, North Africa, and Southern Europe.

And after its eventual collapse, what lega…
 
Throughout Roman history, from the early days of the republic to the last days of the empire, Rome was threatened by barbarian tribes.

But Rome’s biggest threat was not the barbarians, at least, not until the very end. At the heigh…
 
The Underground Railroad helped up to 100,000 enslaved people to freedom. It was America’s first civil rights movement, operated by Black and white people united in their abhorrence of slavery.

When Rome got rid of her last king, an aftereffect was that Rome had a long-lasting hatred of tyrants, and so the government they set up was designed to prevent any one man from taking power. Not to say that their original government was completely fair and just - at first the government of the Republic was completely run by the patricians. The ple…
