Byzantium: Part VII
The threat of the Gothic peoples in 395 left Rome in perpetual threat, as it was saved from sacking by bribery. In 401, Alaric, the leader of the Goths, returned to attack Italy. However, Alaric was stopped from conquering Milan and Rome by force, instead moving east to pillage.
In the east, St. John Chrysostom, the Bishop of Constantinople, provided scathing criticism of the Byzantine Empress. This Bishop was exiled, which garnered criticism from both the Western Church and Emperor. However, John died in exile, avoiding a full fledge crisis. Soon after, the Byzantine Emperor Arcadius passes away, leaving the throne to his young son Theodosius, which invited challenge. Honorius’s Vandal advisor Stilicho gathered his forces in rebellion. Honorius crushed the rebellion, killing Stilicho. However, Honorius went too far, launching a crusade against the barbarian tribes. Alaric finally saw an opportunity to take Rome. However, Honorius paid a hefty ransom of valuables to free the city. Furthermore, Alaric demanded a homeland Austria and Slovenia, which he was denied. Alaric finally was finally done dealing with Honorius’s incompetence, so he marched again on Rome. To avoid siege, the Roman Senate agreed to depose Honorius. Attalus, a Roman, was placed in charge and tasked with conquering North Africa. When he failed, Alaric sacked Rome. This event in 410 marks the end of the classical Roman period, ending Rome’s dominance over Europe and the barbarians, with barbarians dominating Rome.

Wanderlust Diaries: Rome // The view from our suite @innatthespanishsteps of the Spanish Steps on an early summer morn just before the crowds gather. It always feels like the first time even though it’s already been my third time visiting this glorious and fascinating city.
Знай, что я не просто так
Убежать я не хочу!
Я хочу тебя обнять
И сказать, что я люблю.
Все, что есть в тебе люблю
И готов я ждать судьбу
Ту, что Бог мне даровал
Он с тобою жизнь мне дал.
