Crossover: Will Pope Francis Retire in 2022? with Popeular History

May 26, 2022

Given that Pontifacts remains in unexpected hiatus, Bry was invited by Gregg of the Popeular History Podcast to discuss his favourite (and Bry's LEAST favourite) theory about Pope Francis! 

In this episode, Gregg and Bry discuss Francis's attitude and commentary about retirement, the Apostolic Constitution, the College of Cardinals, and the one thing they both fervently agree on - their top pick for the next pope!

112. Stephen V

112. Stephen V

April 11, 2022

Due to naming confusion, Pope Stephen V is often called Stephen VI - but he is not THAT Stephen VI! 

In his episode, we will discuss his response to the locust-caused famine, special dispensations in light of Saracen violence, the final decision on the Slavonic liturgy, and the END of the Carolingian Dynasty!

111. Adrian III

111. Adrian III

March 21, 2022

Sources on Adrian's papacy are very confused about just about everything! 

In his episode, we discuss Hadrian's severe anti-corruption crackdown, a literal plague of locusts, a Diet in Worms (not -that- Diet of Worms), and whether any of it happened when we think it did.

In this very special Actual Play episode, we were invited by Zoe and Mac of the Maniculum Podcast to play through the Green Knight TTRPG game, inspired by the A24 release of the Green Knight Movie

Listen as we team up with Andy and John from Saga Thing, and Mary from BookSquadGoals on an adventure to redeem our honour, and face impending death at the hands of the Green Knight!

Playing through literature-inspired games is super fun with Medievalists!!

110. Marinus I

110. Marinus I

February 21, 2022

Although there is some confusion over Pope Marinus and his name, one thing that is perfectly clear is that his papacy set an important precedent in papal elections! In his episode, we discuss his approach to the ongoing Formosus situation, his relationship with a rexy king, and another spiritual blow in the Muslim conflict.

 

Please forgive our warbles, our mics were pure chaos this time around. 

109. John VIII

109. John VIII

February 7, 2022

Pope Mad Hook assumes the papacy, and is faced with all the danger! In his episode, we discuss a full on pirate defense of Rome, difficult Guidos, a major shift in how the Holy Roman Emperors were chosen, and the first conflicts of Formosus - with shocking consequences!

108. Adrian II

108. Adrian II

January 24, 2022

Adrian refused being elected pope twice before his actual pontificate, most likely because he was a married family man! 

In his episode, we discuss a surprise invasion of Rome, the somewhat resolution of the Lotharian divorce issue, courting the conversion of Buglars and Slavs, and the MOST perplexing murder.
